    Ms. Schmid’s appointment, effective May 1, ends a roughly six-month search for a permanent CEO, filling the void left when then-CEO Evan Rayner stepped down from the position. George Protos, head of human resources, served as CEO in the interim.

    “I look forward to relocating to the district and having the opportunity to help lead Healdsburg District Hospital in the ongoing promotion of good health in the communities we serve,” Ms. Schmid said in a statement.

    Ms. Schmid is currently CEO of Kingfisher Regional Hospital in Oklahoma and will relocate to Sonoma County with her family. She received her B.S.,  followed by an M.A.,  in health administration at Brigham Young University. She also holds a master of public administration degree from the University of Utah.

    She also worked for Salt Lake City-based Intermountain Healthcare, a nonprofit health system of 22 hospitals, and has helped two hospitals through implementation of electronic medical records. Healdsburg District said that experience will help it convert to EMRs.

    “Ms. Schmid has the full trust and confidence of the board to lead the district as we implement changes brought on by the Affordable Care Act and the introduction of an electronic medical record system,” E.J. Neil, chair of the district board of directors, said in announcing her appointment.
