Guthrie CEO Returns Home

Bookmark and Share

After serving Logan Medical Center in Guthrie for the past five years, CEO Dennis Hunger, is returning to his hometown of Washington, Iowa, where he grew up on the family farm.

Hunger resigns his post after five years with LMC.

“It is a difficult decision to make. My wife and I have four children under the age of six and I have two grandmothers in Iowa both in their 90s. It’s time to return home,” Hunger said in a release by the hospital. “Actually, it couldn’t be better timing for Logan Medical Center because we are now well positioned with Mercy for the future of healthcare in Logan County.”

In early May, after a long and thorough selection process, Mercy was chosen as the leading candidate to assume ownership of the hospital. Together, Logan Medical Center and Mercy are currently in a process of due diligence.

Beginning August 1, 2011, Hunger will take the CEO helm at Washington County Hospital and Clinics – a 25-bed critical access hospital and 43-bed nursing home – in Washington, Iowa.

“We have a large, extended family back in Iowa,” said Hunger. “While we will miss our Guthrie community, it will be a great homecoming for my family in Iowa.”
