SCKMC Announces New CEO

December 22, 2014

The Board of Trustees of the South Central Kansas Medical Center has reached an agreement for the hospital's new CEO. The employment was unanimously approved during their monthly meeting, held last week.

Arkansas City, KS - The Board of Trustees of the South Central Kansas Medical Center has reached an agreement for the hospital's new CEO. The employment was unanimously approved during their monthly meeting, held last week.

"We are pleased to announce that Virgil Watson Jr. has accepted the position of CEO," said Board Chairman Dr. Nick Rogers following the meeting.

Watson, a native of Arkansas City, attended the University of Kansas, receiving a bachelors degree in elementary education and a masters of public and health administration degree. He held numerous administrative positions at Arkansas City Memorial Hospital between 1977 and 1996, including Business Office Manager, Human Resources Director, and Assistant Administrator. In 1996 Watson was hired as CEO for Sumner County Hospital District 1 in Caldwell Kansas. He remains in that role today, but has announced that he will be leaving to take over the CEO responsibilities at SCKMC.

Watson was one of three finalists who were interviewed this month for the CEO position.

"Out of the many applicants we reviewed, (the Board) had three strong finalists to consider for the CEO position. After extensive interviews and consideration we are pleased with the outcome," Rogers said.

The board reported that Watson will assume duties beginning in January.
