Ephraim McDowell officials get new duties

December 21, 2003

Ephraim McDowell Health has announced that two members of its administrative team and a long-time associate will assume additional responsibilities effective Jan. 5, 2004.

Dan Stone will become vice president of Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center in addition to his current role as vice president of Ephraim McDowell Health Resource. In his current capacity, Stone has provided leadership to Ephraim McDowell's family medical centers in Boyle and five other counties as well as to McDowell Wellness Center, McDowell Place of Danville, MedSource and A Children's Place. In his new role, Stone will assume leadership over these key departments at the Medical Center: Diagnostic Imaging, Laboratory and Pathology, Cardiovascular/Pulmonary/Neurology, Dietary and Pharmacy.

"As we prepare to enter 2004, we are making some administrative realignments to better reflect our needs as we focus on our largest entity, the Medical Center," said Clark Taylor, chief executive officer of Ephraim McDowell Health. "Dan Stone is an excellent choice for working at the Medical Center on a senior level."


Having Stone assume these additional responsibilities will provide much-needed administrative support for Barry Michael, the Medical Center's president.

"We are fortunate to have the talent and flexibility within our organization to meet our needs as they arise," Michael said. "I look forward to working closely with Dan in his leadership role at the Medical Center."

Shelly Clements will become the Director of Practice Management and will be responsible for working directly with Homestead Family Medicine in Springfield, Harrodsburg Family Medical Center, Liberty Family Medical Center and Danville Family Physicians in addition to her current responsibilities as performance improvement coordinator for the family medical centers and coordinator of MedSource.

"Shelly has eight years of service with Ephraim McDowell and has a strong clinical background, which will lend itself well to her new responsibilities," said Stone. "This is an excellent opportunity for her to contribute at a higher level at Ephraim McDowell."

Mike Jackson, president of Fort Logan Hospital in Stanford, will assume leadership for Stanford Medical Park and North Garrard Family Medical Center in Lancaster.

"Mike has proven to be a successful leader for Fort Logan Hospital as well as representing our acute and ambulatory interests in Lincoln and Garrard counties," Taylor said.
