The El Camino Hospital Board of Directors last week voted unanimously to hire Donald C. Sibery as interim CEO.
Sibery replaces Tomi Ryba, whose contract the board opted not to renew in August. Ryba will serve through the end of October.
Board members Lanhee Chen and Neal Cohen were appointed to negotiate a contract with Sibery.
Originally from the Detroit area, Sibery comes to Mountain View from Traverse City in the northwest corner of Michigan. He was interim CEO at Renown Health in Reno for 16 months in 2013-2014. Sibery graduated from the University of Iowa, where he played football in the late 1960s.
Sibery, approved Sept. 27, will hold the position while the board searches for a permanent CEO. The new CEO’s approved salary range will be $775,200 to $1,162,800.
