The Wyoming Medical Center Board of Directors has announced the selection of Michele Chulick, M.B.A., as the hospital’s new president and CEO.
According to a release from WMC officials, Chulick will begin on July 17, but will spend the first couple of weeks meeting with staff, learning Wyoming Medical Center culture and policy, and transitioning into the position. Current president and CEO, Vickie Diamond, will retain her duties until her retirement on Aug. 1.
Most recently, Chulick was president of CHST Ventures, a division of Children’s Health System of Texas. CHST is a healthcare system with 616 beds and more than 950,000 patients per year.
“Ms. Chulick has a background in the development and management of joint ventures, including with not-for-profit organizations, affiliations and network expansion; and she has extensive experience in business development and technological innovation, including the implementation of virtual health and telemedicine,” said Edith Selby, vice chairwoman of the WMC Board of Directors.
“She will fit in well here. She is a leader, a collaborator and she has the experience to lead Wyoming Medical Center into its next phase of growth.”
