Rick Linneweh Jr. is retiring next week as CEO of Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital after 37 years – and one day – at the helm. Retiring as just the third CEO in Memorial’s history, Rick talked about his career and his future on KIT 1280 on January 14, 2014.
Under his leadership, the hospital has seen incredible growth and change over the years. From the development of new treatment centers – Children’s Village, North Star Lodge Cancer Care Center, Cottage in the Meadow hospice center – to the creation of The Memorial Foundation, Memorial’s philanthropic arm, and his continued support for health care education and advancement in the Yakima Valley, Rick has made no secret of his love for this community. We wish him all the best in retirement!
