The Los Alamos Medical Center today announced that F. Curtis Smith has been named interim CEO while a national search for a permanent CEO is underway. Smith assumes the top leadership role on an interim basis following the resignation of Wally Vette, according to Don Bivacca, President of the National Division of LifePoint Hospitals of which LAMC is a part.
“We are fortunate to have Curt Smith serve as our interim CEO at Los Alamos as we launch an aggressive national search for qualified candidates to fill the top leadership role on a permanent basis,” said Bivacca. “Curt has considerable healthcare management experience and will ensure strong management and leadership during this transition.”
Smith has more than 30 years of healthcare management experience. Most recently, he was a senior director of Alvarez & Marsal Healthcare Industry Group in New York, where he provided consulting services to a number of hospitals in New York and Massachusetts.
Previously, for 15 years Smith served as the chief executive for Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, a specialty hospital in Boston which is a research and teaching partner of Harvard Medical School. He holds a Masters in Public Health from Harvard School of Public Health and an MBA from Northeastern University in Boston.
