Hospital announces interim CEO

Chadron Community Hospital & Health Services has announced that its Board of Trustees has appointed Sean Wolfe as Interim Chief Executive Officer (CEO), effective March 27, 2024. This decision is part of the hospital’s ongoing commitment to ensuring effective leadership during this transitional period. It also allows Jennifer Brown, who has been serving as Interim CEO following the departure of our previous CEO, to resume her duties as Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Mr. Wolfe will assume administrative responsibilities for the hospital, Prairie Pines Lodge, Western Community Health Resources, and Legend Buttes Health Services.

Sean Wolfe is the current CFO at Community Hospital in McCook, Nebraska, and looks forward to helping Chadron during this time of transition as the Hospital fills its executive vacancies. He is originally from South central Nebraska and attended Chadron State for his accounting education. Following college, he worked in public accounting for nearly five years before becoming the controller, and eventually CFO, of the hospital in McCook, where he has been for over 15 years. Community Hospital in McCook has helped other hospitals in the region during times of transition and has long included in its mission the philosophy that, for the healthcare industry in rural America to be strong, we must be willing to assist each other whenever possible. These partnerships are beneficial for both facilities involved as ideas and best practices can be shared and valuable relationships are built.
