The first of January marked a new era for Bozeman Deaconess Health Services as Stan Moser takes over as the new Chief Executive Officer of the organization. Moser was selected by the hospital board of trustees as part of a nationwide recruitment process and joined Bozeman Deaconess Hospital in 2010 as chief administrative officer. He brings over 25 years of healthcare experience to the hospital and his new role.
Looking to the future, Moser says he is eager to collaborate with the entire medical community of Bozeman to further the hospital mission of improving community health and quality of life. According to Moser, “We cannot meet this goal alone.” With the recent changes in healthcare, Moser is ready to hit the ground running. “Healthcare reform will create unique challenges in the next few years ahead, and we intend to meet those challenges ‘head-on’, using past accomplishments as a springboard towards superior, cost-effective service,” Moser says. “We will continue our focus on patient safety and the quality of care and work hard to live up to the community’s expectation of us.”
Prior to joining Bozeman Deaconess, Moser directed financial and risk management operations for a 240+ physician group, Mount Kisco Medical Group, north of New York City since 2006. He spent five years as chief financial officer at Billings Clinic where he worked collaboratively with other Montana hospitals along with New West Insurance, a provider-sponsored health plan, and 14 other Mountain State Hospitals to develop MSRRG which provides malpractice insurance to Bozeman Deaconess Hospital as well as over 20 hospitals in the Northwest. Moser was also chief financial officer at non-profit hospitals in Gilroy, Tracy and San Jose, CA and at Providence Health Systems in Everett, WA.
According to Terry Cunningham, chair, board of trustees, “Stan Moser brings a unique skill set to Bozeman Deaconess Health Services; one that includes hospital administration, senior leadership of a large multi-specialty physician group and experience in the healthcare insurance field. He brings a robust, varied and distinguished résumé to Bozeman Deaconess Health Services.”
Moser replaces John Nordwick, who held the position of CEO/President of Bozeman Deaconess since 1995 and retired at the end of 2011. “We begin 2012 with the legacy of a strong CEO and management team,” Moser points out. And he is confident Bozeman Deaconess will build on that foundation as we strive to provide highly reliable, coordinated, exceptional medical care to those who live in or visit southwest Montana.
