News Release

NEW ALBANY, Ind. – The Floyd Memorial Hospital and Health Services’ Board of Trustees is pleased to announce the appointment of Daniel J. Eichenberger, MD, MBA, as interim CEO of Floyd Memorial Hospital and Health Services. Eichenberger is a long-time, local primary care provider in our community. He will continue to practice with Floyd Memorial Medical Group – Physician Associates of Floyds Knobs, in a limited capacity, as well as serve as chief medical officer for Floyd Memorial.

Dr. Eichenberger will provide leadership and support to the executive team, and will report directly to Board of Trustees chairman, Marc J. McCormick and Board member, James Y. McCullough, Jr., MD, a retired surgeon at Floyd Memorial, until a permanent CEO is appointed.

In addition to being board certified in both adult internal medicine and pediatrics, Dr. Eichenberger earned his master’s degree in business administration in healthcare management in 2013.

Dr. Eichenberger replaces Dan Fairley, who had also acted in an interim CEO position at Floyd Memorial from mid-December 2014 to mid-March 2015. Fairley, a partner of Leadership Vision, LLC, in Indianapolis, was appointed to the position after previous CEO, Mark Shugarman, resigned to take another position. Fairley worked extensively to assist the executive team with first quarter goals and projects and has returned to his consulting company, Leadership Vision, LLC.

The Board expresses its appreciation to Fairley for all of his accomplishments in re-energizing Floyd Memorial’s management in identifying improvement opportunities, while assisting the Board in preparation for the next phases of healthcare reform.

“We believe Dr. Eichenberger is an excellent choice for the interim CEO position. He is a respected member of our community and already works closely with the leadership team at Floyd Memorial. His guidance will help the organization thrive in the current healthcare environment. We are very pleased to have him serve in this capacity,” said Marc McCormick, Chairman of the Board of Trustees.
