For an interim period of approximately six months, Beth Honkomp has been named interim Administrator of Carris Health – Redwood. She replaces former administrator Bryan Lydick, who was promoted within the Carris Health organization in February.
Honkomp retired from CentraCare where she was VP of Performance Excellence after 35 years with the organization. Honkomp was familiar with Redwood as she worked on the organization’s integration into Carris Health in 2019.
CentraCare and Carris Health have established a search committee to identify a permanent Administrator for Redwood.
Lydick, who currently serves on the search committee and will continue to provide local oversight to Carris Health – Redwood, stated, “With all that Redwood has to offer in a new health campus, robust healthcare services and being associated with a strong health system like CentraCare, this is a sought-after position. We have been pleased to have a strong pool of applicants.”
Applications are being vetted and several candidates have been brought forward for the first stage of virtual interviewing.
“When the process moves on to second round interviews, those will happen in person with more individuals participating including Redwood senior leadership team and physician leaders as well as Redwood Operating Committee,” said Lydick.
The committee aims to select a new administrator by June so that individual can get started this summer.
