GREENVILLE — Mazie B. Whalen, RN, MSN, has been named interim CEO/President of Delta Regional Medical Center, by the hospital Board of Trustees. Whalen has over 40 years of hospital experience including 30 years in hospital leadership. Currently, Whalen serves as the Senior Vice President Nursing Services at Delta Regional Medical Center. Whalen will assume her responsibilities on April 16, 2010, upon the departure of current CEO/President, L.Ray Humphreys.

Delta Regional Medical Center’s Board of Trustees Chairman Bill Schulz says, “Choosing Mazie Whalen as interim CEO/President was not a difficult decision for the board. Mrs. Whalen has continuously demonstrated her ability to lead within the hospital to the board throughout her tenure as Chief Nursing Officer and Chief Clinical Officer. Mrs. Whalen’s extensive healthcare experience and years of commitment to the community make her the best choice.” As Whalen serves as interim CEO/President, a search committee led by hospital board Chairman Bill Schultz will work within the best practice methods to select a new CEO/President.

  1. It appears DRMC is guilty of racketeering. DRMC recently awarded an exclusive contract to Donald Prior for radiology services and excluded 2 more qualified radiologists. The reason given IN WRITING was to avoid competition! Greenville is desperate for physicians. This looks like an easy case for the Justice Department. This smacks of corruption! Some bright lawyer will be able to retire with this case settlement!
