Cabinet Peaks Medical Center this week named registered nurse Douglas Mudgett as its new chief nursing officer.

Mudgett is coming to Cabinet Peaks from California Correctional Health Care Services, where he worked for the last 12 years at the headquarters office as a leader for Nursing Services to redesign and re-build the healthcare system for the 35-facility enterprise. He holds a master of business in administration from the University of Phoenix, a master of science in nursing from the University of Phoenix, and a bachelor of science in nursing from California Berkeley.

Mudgett, who has worked in the health-care field for 33 years, said he is ready to take on his new role at Cabinet Peaks.

“I plan to be the best leader I can possibly be for the departments and the people in the clinical services areas of CPMC while maintaining CPMC’s great relationship with the community it serves. I also ook forward to supporting the medical center’s mission of quality and compassionate care, all while working to keep services to our patients current with the improvements developing in the industry,” he stated.

Bruce Whitfield, CEO at Cabinet Peaks Medical Center, said he is excited to have Mudgett on board.

“I am thrilled to have someone with Doug’s vast experience join our administrative team. I know he will be a great fit here at CPMC and in Libby.”

Mudgett has been married for 32 years to his wife, Michele. They have two grown daughters and two grandsons ages 8 and 10. The move to Northwest Montana has been long coming for them.

“My wife and I fell in love with the Northwest Montana over two decades ago and with the community of Libby over the last couple of years,” Mudgett states. “Living and working in Libby is a dream come true. Thanks everyone for welcoming us.”

Doug and Michele said they enjoy many outdoor activities year-round and also enjoy gardening, traveling and family.
