Snoqualmie Valley Hospital CEO resigns, accepts new position in California

Snoqualmie Valley Hospital (SVH) CEO Tom Parker recently announced that he has accepted the position as CEO of Mammoth Hospital in California and will resign his SVH position as of November 24, 2018. He 

In Parker’s communication to the Hospital Board of Commissioners and staff he stated:

“It has been an honor to lead and serve as COO and CEO of Snoqualmie Valley Hospital these past eight years and to serve the thousands of residents who depend on our hospital and clinics. It has been my great privilege to work with you, an exceptionally dedicated and skilled team of clinicians, support staff, managers, and executives who provide compassionate, technically skilled, and highly satisfying services to our patients, their family members, and the public. I am proud of what we have accomplished as a team to assure the provision of safe and effective healthcare services and the long-term viability of the Hospital. I know that Snoqualmie Valley Hospital will continue to thrive as an increasingly indispensable provider of healthcare services in the region.”

Parker said that his new position in Mammoth Lakes affords the opportunity to lead another high quality thriving organization –  one that is larger with a broader scope of services. It will also bring he and his wife closer to family in California, Utah and Arizona.

SVH Board President Dariel Norris said, “Personally, it has been my pleasure to work with CEO, Tom Parker. I appreciate that he engages each commissioner between Board meetings to hear our concerns and goals for Snoqualmie Valley Hospital. Our Hospital is in a better position as a result of his strong leadership and partnership with the Board of Commissioners as well as the Executive Staff. Tom Parker will be missed. I wish him the very best in his new Executive Position.”

Parker started at Snoqualmie Valley Hospital in 2010 as the Chief Operating Officer. He took over as CEO in February 2016 when the Board of Commissioners terminated the contract of former CEO Rodger McCollum.

  1. As a long time observer and sometimes critic of Public Hospital District #4, I can only say that I believe under Tom Parker’s capable leadership, the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital and clinics have continued to grow and mature with exciting new possibilities for the delivery of healthcare to Valley residents as a result of forthcoming affiliation negotiations with a regional healthcare provider. Tom will be missed.
