Winneshiek Medical Center Chief Medical Officer Dr. Susan Halter has officially announced plans to retire next July.

Dr. Halter joined Winneshiek Medical Center in February of last year on an interim basis.  She had been working in La Crosse, coming back to work after a previous retirement.  Halter has maintained her home in La Crosse.

Winneshiek Medical Center officials credit Dr. Halter with recruiting eight health care providers; with expanding seven clinic services; and with helping to form WMC's strategic plan.

"We are thankful for her commitment to our facility and community," said Chief Administrative Officer Gretchen Dahlen of Halter's service.

A ten member search committee has been appointed to find a new Chief Medical Officer.  The committee will include WMC Board members Ben Wyatt, Roger Huinker and Steve Hildebrand.
