Randall Hoover has been selected as interim CEO of Oconee Regional Medical Center in Milledgeville.
That's according to a news release. The release says Hoover's starting date is Monday.
Hoover has more than 25 years of experience in healthcare administration and served as CEO in hospitals in Tennessee, Alabama, Louisiana and Texas.
This comes after the hospital paid former CEO Jean Aycock more than $350,000 to resign, according to a separation agreement. Aycock resigned amid financial problems that recently led to about a dozen layoffs.
Last year, Oconee partnered with Navicent Health, which helps manage the hospital. Recently, the public and some doctors have complained about cuts at the hospital and Navicent's role.
