Victoria Alexander-Lane is no longer the Chief Executive Officer for the Northern Inyo Healthcare District, as of this afternoon.
An email was delivered to employees of Northern Inyo Hospital today, and a terse press was was issued by Northern Inyo Hospital:
It reads: “The Board of Northern Inyo Healthcare District and its CEO have agreed to make the following statement:
Ms. Alexander-Lane’s employment as the Chief Executive Officer of Northern Inyo Healthcare District has ended effective immediately.
The Board thanks her for her contributions over the last eighteen months and wishes her well in her future career.
The District and Ms. Alexander-Lane have agreed to make no further statement regarding her employment and the ending of her employment.”
The Northern Inyo Healthcare District Board of Directors has appointed Dr. Kevin Flanigan as the interim Chief Executive Officer.
Alexander-Lane was hired in January, 2014 and attended her first board meeting in April of last year.
The past few months have seen many tense Northern Inyo Hospital Board meetings, with employees and members of the public critical of Alexander-Lane’s management style.
Nurses at Northern Inyo Hospital formed a union earlier this year, and there’s a pending lawsuit against Mammoth Hospital, which opened an office in Bishop.
