After 27 plus years of dedicated service to Stoughton Hospital and the community, President/CEO Terry Brenny, has announced his planned retirement from Stoughton Hospital effective June 1, 2018.
Under Brenny’s leadership, Stoughton Hospital experienced significant growth and success. Brenny guided the hospital through many major changes including: conversion to electronic health records, opening two satellite clinics, starting Stoughton Hospital Home Health Program, developing a hospitalist program, and initiating the first Dane County valet and room service for patients and visitors. Beginning in 1995 the hospital implemented its first major construction and renovation project and followed with three more – the most recent being a $13.2M project completed in April 2017.
Brenny’s tenure at the hospital has been recognized with multiple awards and accolades which he attributes to the hospital’s Excellence Together Program initiated in 2006. Stoughton Hospital consistently leads the industry with exceptionally high patient, physician and employee satisfaction and engagement scores monitored through Press Ganey. Brenny has been a champion in creating a culture where patients, employees and physicians are engaged, fulfilled and focused on the mission of Stoughton Hospital to “provide safe, quality healthcare with exceptional personalized service” to their patients and families.
A Search Committee made up of governing board members from the hospital’s service area will be working with an executive search consultant firm to assist with finding qualified candidates.
