Willis-Knighton Board of Trustees Supports CEO James Elrod


Dr. Frank B. Hughes, chairman of the Board of Trustees of Willis-Knighton Health System, announced this afternoon that following lengthy discussion and deliberation over the last several days, and careful consideration of its options, the Board of Trustees voted on two issues. 

First, the Board voted to continue operating Willis-Knighton under the leadership of James Elrod, our current president and chief executive officer.

Second the Board decided to delegate to Mr. Elrod any decision regarding WKHS’s relationship with Chuck Daigle, WKHS’s chief operating officer.  

Following this meeting, we have issues we will continue to work through, and we will do so in a thoughtful, orderly and thorough manner, keeping in mind at all times the welfare of our employees, our patients and the community we serve.
