WINKLER COUNTY - Winkler County Memorial Hospital has an interim administrator.

Now board members can focus on finding someone to take the job full time.

In meetings held on Thursday night and Friday morning, hospital board members and County Commissioners met and voted to go into a 90 day agreement with Preferred Management Corporation, from Shawnee, Oklahoma.

During that time, Mike Easley will serve as Interim Administrator and the company will provide consulting on hospital operations.

The board must now decide which route to take to find a new, full time administrator.

They're currently accepting applications for that position and the topic will likely be discussed at their regular meeting next Thursday evening.
