24-Year-Old CEO on Why CAHs Struggle to Hire, Retain Leaders
Aidan Hettler, the 24-year-old CEO of Sedgwick County (Colorado) Health Center, initially did not believe he should be hired for the job.
Hettler acknowledges the fact that he was interviewed at all is a sign of a challenge many rural Colorado hospitals have face: difficulty hiring and retaining CEOs. “If it was not difficult to recruit, no, I probably would not have gotten an interview,” he says.
