Salard named as Chief of Staff at WMC
Physician Lynn Prysunka has stepped down as Chief of Staff at Wrangell Medical Center – a move that will see Dr. Greg Salard step into the position.
On Monday, July 8, Dr. Prysunka offered her resignation after serving in that role for several years, according to WMC CEO Marla Sanger.
“Dr. Greg Salard agreed to assume these duties effective immediately,” Sanger said. “WMC greatly appreciates all of our physicians and wishes to acknowledge in particular the highly professional and skillful leadership that Dr. Prysunka has provided to WMC in her long tenure as Chief of Staff.”
Salard accepted Prysunka’s nomination for the position and was unanimously approved in a vote by the medical staff at the hospital.
“I plan on continuing the good work that Dr. Prysunka has done,” Salard said. “Lynn has done an excellent job during the years she was chief.”
The primary duty of a Chief of Staff is to represent the entire medical staff as a unified body.
