Cheyenne Regional Medical Center trustees have chosen former Interim CEO Margo Karsten to lead the hospital on a permanent basis.

The hospital board on Thursday evening voted unanimously for Karsten over the other finalist for the job, Randy Anderson, Vice President of Sanford Health of South Dakota. Board President Joe Evans says Karsten is very well qualified to take over the top post at CRMC in part because of her extensive background managing both large- and medium-sized healthcare systems.
