Holom Appointed Interim Director of Valley View Home
In a press release, the CEO of Frances Mahon Deaconess Hospital, Randy Holom has announced he will be taking over as the interim director of Valley View Home. Last month, President of the VVH Board of Directors Brian Fuhrman announced they were terminating their relationship with Health Management Services of Billings, who had overseen one of the worst DPHHS inspections in the facility’s history and had trouble retaining local staff members and nurses.
The release states, “This is a short-term position for Mr. Holom, as Valley View searches for an alternative interim administrator who can commit more time than Mr. Holom’s hospital responsibilities allow with the goal of ultimately employing a permanent administrator of the facility.” The release goes on to explain that the hospital is committed to a lasting partnership with the home, and that Holom will, “assist them in identifying a path that will take their mission of service to the community well into the future.”
The hospital’s release also sought to quell rumors that FMDH may be attempting to take over the VVH services stating, “This complimentary service to the community in no way indicates that the hospital is taking over Valley View, but rather it is an extension of FMDH’s values of commitment, compassion, innovation, stewardship, competence, communication, and cooperation.”
Holom’s assessment of VVH is reportedly positive with the release quoting him saying, “There is a very good leadership team in place that is ready to take Valley View Home into the future.”
