After 40 years at Black River Memorial Hospital, CEO Mary Beth White Jacobs has announced her plans to retire. White-Jacobs made the announcement to the hospital’s board of directors on October 28th. She’ll retire on the date she originally started working for the hospital, which is July 1, 2022. White-Jacobs was hired as a graduate nurse to work in the Medical/Surgery department in July 1982, and she cross trained to the OB department, where she became the OB Head nurse in 1986. In 1997, she was promoted to the position of Vice President of Patient Care Services, and in 2013 was selected as CEO. In the press release, White-Jacobs says it’s been an honor and a privilege to serve Black River Memorial Hospital and the surrounding communities. The Board of Directors for BRMH has already started the process of recruiting a new CEO, and a candidate is expected to be selected by early summer.
