Samaritan Promotes New CEOs at Three Hospitals

Three Samaritan Health Services leaders have been promoted to the Chief Executive Officer position at their respective hospital, effective immediately.

Becky Pape is the new CEO of Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Corvallis. Marty Cahill is serving as CEO at Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital and Lesley Ogden, MD, has assumed the CEO position at Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital in Lincoln City.

All three have served as chief operations officers of their respective hospitals since June 2013.

Larry Mullins, DHA, president and CEO of Samaritan, announced the appointments this month.

“Each of these executives has done outstanding work while serving in their respective interim roles, and their promotions reflect Samaritan’s confidence in their leadership,” Mullins said.

Pape has been with Samaritan since 1987. She has held positions of progressive responsibility at Samaritan-affiliated hospitals in Corvallis, Lebanon and Albany, most recently as CEO of Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital and COO of Good Samaritan concurrently.

“Here at the Regional Medical Center, we are particularly focused on ensuring that the services offered here are of the highest quality and that our patients and families have a positive experience with us,” Pape said.

Cahill joined Samaritan in 2007 and has held positions of progressive responsibility since then. Most recently, he served concurrently as COO in Lebanon and as CEO at Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital.

“This is an exciting time to be in Lebanon and I’m honored to serve as CEO,” Cahill said.  “We have had many major developments this past year on our campus and look forward to next year as we expand our Emergency/Surgery departments at our hospital. We’re in a good position to take care of east Linn County’s health needs into the future and I’m looking forward to continuing our work with our staff and communities.”

Ogden, a board-certified emergency physician, joined Samaritan in 2006 and continues to work an occasional shift in Urgent Care or the hospital Emergency Department in addition to her administrative responsibilities.

“I am delighted to accept the position of CEO at Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital,” Ogden said.  “It is an honor to be given the opportunity to continue to work with the fabulous healthcare professionals and staff at our hospital and clinics and to lead this organization into a bright future.  There is an abundance of positive change going on in our hospital, so much that you can almost feel the excitement, and it is this enthusiasm for great healthcare that will enable us to exceed our quality and safety goals and continue our momentum forward into new hospital facilities.”
