DCHPress release from Dearborn County Hospital


(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – The Dearborn County Hospital Board of Trustees has announced that Roger D. Howard will succeed Peter V. Resnick as Executive Director/Chief Executive Officer of Dearborn County Hospital.  Mr. Resnick, who has held the leadership position at DCH since mid-1993, is scheduled to retire this spring.


Mr. Howard, who currently serves as Director of Clinical Services and Facilities at DCH, is a 35 year employee of the hospital.  In his present capacity, Mr. Howard is responsible for overseeing the general operations of numerous departments of the hospital, including Imaging/Radiology, Internal Medicine, Rehabilitation Services, Laboratory, Pharmacy and Maintenance, as well as all new construction.


The Search Committee, comprised of the DCH Board of Trustees and three members of the Dearborn County Hospital Medical Staff, employed the services of the Nutter Group, a well-known Cincinnati based executive recruitment firm.  Following an extensive search and the on-site interviewing of selected candidates, Mr. Howard was chosen as the hospital’s next chief executive officer.


Mr. Howard brings a wealth of professional and hands-on clinical experience and knowledge to the position.  These attributes, combined with his long time association with the hospital and its medical staff and his familiarity with the region, make him uniquely qualified to lead Dearborn County Hospital into the future.
