QUINTER — The Gove County Medical Center in Quinter will soon have a new CEO, according to the social media report below.
David Caudill has been the CEO at Grisell Memorial Hospital in Ransom since 2015. Prior to the administrator position at Grisell, Caudill was the human resources director at Rush County Memorial Hospital in La Crosse from 2012 to 2015. Outside of health care, Caudill has done consulting for college in a human resources capacity and has covered EMS duties in several counties.
Caudill said he is excited about the opportunities and services that GCMC has to offer.
“I love Critical Access and to be able to be a part of a Critical Access Hospital that offers expanded services is wonderful,” Caudill said.
Caudill and his wife of almost seven years, Krystina, live in Ransom. The Caudills are planning on moving to Quinter and have started the process of finding a house here. The Caudills have one son, David, who will be four in May. Caudill said his wife is currently a Licensed Baccalaureate Social Worker at Grisell in the Long Term Care Unit. Starting this summer, his wife plans to begin her master's courses and start her Clinical Social Work course at the same time.
Caudill says he feels his biggest professional accomplishment was building a new CT suite at Grisell. The hospital had never had a CT and was able to bring in a brand new state-of-the-art CT from Siemens Healthcare and remodel the entire suite.
When not at work, Caudill and his wife enjoy traveling. Caudill also loves fishing, “If I could fish every day I would,” he said.
GCMC is excited about welcoming David and his wife to Quinter.
GCMC would like to thank Coleen Tummons for her more than 32 years of service to the hospital. She will be greatly missed by all and GCMC wishes her the best as her husband, Dwight, and she embark on this new chapter.
