Wyoming Medical Center, Casper, promoted its chief nursing officer and chief operating officer, Vickie Diamond, to president and chief executive officer.
Diamond succeeds Robert Turner, who stepped down from his post at the 205-bed hospital in mid-February. Diamond, who assumes her new post effective immediately, stepped in as interim CEO in March 2007, after chief executive Pam Fulks departure until Turners arrival in September 2007. The hospital will launch a national search to fill its vacant CNO/COO position, said Shauna VanderLinden, a spokeswoman for the medical center. -- by Melanie Evans
