WOODRUFF, Wis. (WXPR) - A Ministry Health Care leader has been given additional duties.
Monica Hilt has been named president of Ministry Howard Young Health Care in Woodruff. Hilt already is president of Ministry Sacred Heart-St. Mary's hospitals in Tomahawk and Rhinelander. Hilt replaces Sheila Clough who resigned in August.
Hilt says she's worked for 23 years at the two hospitals she currently oversees, but the Howard Young facility is familiar to her, having worked with Sheila Clough. She says Ministry has been working toward having officers in regional positions. “One of the things we've been doing in our region here and it's happening across the country in terms of health care leadership is because of the close proximity of the four hospitals in the northern region we have put in place regional leadership positions prior to this time."
Hilt says Howard Young has good leadership. "Howard Young Health Care has an outstanding group of leaders in place, both at the executive level and also director, supervisor and manager level. They have been doing an outstanding job." Hilt joined ministry Health Care in 1991.
