Todd Willert has been named the new Chief Executive Officer at Community HealthCare System in Onaga.

The Board of Directors of Community HealthCare System made the announcement in a news release. Willert will start on March 24.

Willert has more than 20 years of experience as a CEO in critical access hospitals in Iowa. He has a strong track record of leading financial performance and medical staff recruitment and development, as well as a commitment to community involvement, according to the news release.

He also led the construction of a new replacement hospital while at Nevada, Iowa. Among his many community activities, Willert has served as the president of the Nevada Chamber of Commerce and the Nevada Economic Development Council.

“I am impressed with the professionalism and ownership of the staff and the pride they have in the truly remarkable healthcare system they have developed,” Willert said of Community HealthCare System. “I look forward being a part of its continued growth.”

Willert has a degree in nursing from Lutheran Hospital School of Nursing in Moline, Ill. He received a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Minnesota and a master’s degree in healthcare administration from the University of Iowa.

He is also a diplomat in the American College of HealthCare Executives. He and his wife, Nancy, who is also a registered nurse, have two daughters in the Des Moines area and a five-year old grandson.

Their youngest daughter attended Kansas State University.

CHCS will host a reception to welcome Willert later this spring.

Greg Unruh served as the CEO for CHCS for nine years before moving to Colby in January to serve as CEO of Citizens Medical Center.
