Cabinet Peaks Medical Center has a new chief executive officer.

Officials with the medical facility announced the hiring of Tadd Greenfield, a Montana native, for the position in a Feb. 18 press release. Greenfield comes to Libby from Wyoming, where he recently finished a three-year contract as CEO of Three Rivers Health.

“The board of directors of Cabinet Peaks Medical Center are thrilled to welcome Tadd and his family to Libby and are confident that he will be a tremendous asset to the … team,” said Sarah Sorensen, board chair, in a statement.

Greenfield comes to the position with more than 20 years in the medical profession. After starting out as a dental hygienist, Greenfield pursued a degree in nursing from Missouri’s William Jewell College in 2004. Following a stint as a clinical registered nurse, he entered management. He received his master’s degree in health care administration from Walden University in 2011.

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of Cabinet Peaks Medical Center,” he said in a statement.

Greenfield said he saw his role, in part, as buffering medical center staff from outside forces, allowing them to focus on caring for their patients.

“People who work in health care are special people,” he said. “They want to do well and do good. They understand how they’re making a difference in the lives of the people they care for each and every day. … My goal is to operate this organization with a higher sense of purpose and ensure that external forces don’t distract us from our very important mission of providing quality, compassionate care.”

Greenfield brings his wife of 37 years and his 16-year-old son to Libby.
