(DAVIESS CO.) - St. Vincent announced that it has signed a management agreement to operate Daviess Community Hospital in Washington.

As part of the agreement, the positions of Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer for Daviess will be associates of St. Vincent. The agreement goes into effect April 10th, replacing the hospital's current management agreement with another organization.

Tracy Conroy has accepted the position of CEO and will assume this new role in April. Tracy most recently served as Director of Operations for Tri State Community Clinics. Prior to that she was Director of Clinical Services for The Village at Hamilton Pointe, and also served as CEO of Select Specialty Hospital for 11 years.

Mandy Rodewald will serve as Interim CFO in April. Mandy currently serves as the Controller and Director of Accounting for Daviess Community Hospital. Prior to joining DCH in 2013, Mandy served in various Finance roles at St. Mary's Health, which now goes by the name St. Vincent.

The agreement does not involve the purchase of assets, and both systems will remain independent while working collaboratively with physicians, clinicians and other providers delivering care for Washington and the surrounding area.

In August 2015, the health systems began working together through a clinical affiliation to implement clinical pathways and protocols for enhanced patient care and improved care coordination. Specialty services such as urology, nephrology, and coordinated perinatal and trauma care were added to the Daviess County area.

"This new management agreement continues to strengthen our commitment to providing local access and exceptional care to Daviess County," said Dan Parod, Interim President of St. Vincent Evansville. "St. Vincent and Daviess Community Hospital continue to work together to seek innovations in care, improve quality and provide greater access to the services Daviess County residents tell us they need."

"The DCH Board of Governors continuously looks for ways to improve our community's access to the highest quality healthcare and to ensure our staff has all the resources they need to provide the best care possible," said Daron Steiner, President - Board of Governors of Daviess Community Hospital. "By working more closely with the St. Vincent organization, DCH will be very well prepared to do both."
