The Rankin County Hospital District gave Administrator Brent Wrinkle the boot this week.
Now an interim administrator is running things while the hospital district prepares to look for a permanent replacement.
The decision was made Monday night after hospital district board members spent hours in closed session.
According to Board Chairman Tracy Clanton, the board felt Wrinkle was not performing well or completing all of his duties.
When asked for specifics, Clanton said he didn't think it was proper to elaborate.
Wrinkle worked as Administrator for more than 2 years and was an Upton County Commissioner before that.
