Conemaugh Miners Medical Center will have a new chief executive officer (CEO) beginning December 2016.
Conemaugh Health System has announced that current Nason Hospital CEO Tim Harclerode, RN, MBA, FACHE, will expand his role to serve as CEO of both Conemaugh Miners Medical Center and Nason Hospital. Harclerode replaces President Bill Crowe, who has decided to step down to pursue a new career opportunity.
“We thank Bill for his eleven years of service at Conemaugh Miners,” says Steve Tucker, CEO of Conemaugh Health System. “He has done an excellent job leading Conemaugh Miners through a period of great change and great advancement. We wish him the very best in this new chapter of his career.”
Harclerode has been serving as CEO of Nason Hospital in Roaring Spring since February 2016. Prior to Nason, he served as Chief Operating Officer at Maria Parham Medical Center in North Carolina. He began his healthcare career as a medic in the United States Army.
Harclerode has a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Master of Business Administration, both from West Virginia University. He is also a fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives.
“This is an amazing opportunity to continue to integrate our smaller community hospitals into the Conemaugh Health System and Duke LifePoint Healthcare family,” says Harclerode. “Like Nason Hospital, Conemaugh Miners has a very engaged board, medical staff and employees. I look forward to continuing the great work that Bill helped lead.”
