Rideout Health CEO announces retirement

Rideout Health’s Board of Directors announced last week the retirement of Theresa Hamilton as CEO of the non-profit healthcare organization. Originally planned for next year, Hamilton decided that a leadership transition at this time, prior to the opening of the new Rideout Regional Medical Center, better served the organization.

Board President John Wright said in a news release that board members accepted her resignation with regret and offered the following comment:

“For the past 14 years, seven as CEO, Terri Hamilton has been the driving force behind Rideout’s development into a multi-faceted healthcare organization providing a level of sophisticated medical services rarely found in a community our size and envisioned a regional medical center that would serve patients from our entire region,” the release stated.

While the Board is in the process of selecting a new CEO with qualifications and experience best suited to run Rideout, Wright emphasized that all programs and construction are moving forward without interruption.

“Rideout is moving forward; the new regional medical center will open next year and we’ll continue to care for the people of this community, as we have since 1907,” said Wright.

Rideout Health is an independent, non-profit, community-based healthcare organization that operates Rideout Memorial Hospital, Fremont Medical Center, the Rideout Cancer Center and other medical facilities around the Yuba-Sutter region.
