Page named head of hospital

Alison Page of River Falls has been named interim CEO of Baldwin Area Medical Center. Her term will run from now until July 15.

The decision was just announced by the BAMC Board of Trustees.

In a statement, the board said it was "happy to have Alison lead the Baldwin Area Medical Center and hopes to secure a long-term relationship with her."

Last November Page, a Democrat, lost a state Senate election to incumbent Republican Sheila Harsdorf, who is also from River Falls.

For years Page was vice president of operations at Fairview Red Wing Health Services in Minnesota. In that position she oversaw the design of that new facility, including the selection of all major clinical equipment and systems.

Page has also been chief safety officer of Fairview Health Services, reporting directly to the Fairview CEO in system-wide leadership of quality and safety of patient care.
