The board of Porter Medical Center announced Friday morning that its members voted unanimously to appoint Dr. Fred Kniffin as permanent CEO. Kniffin has served as the Middlebury hospital’s interim CEO for the past six months.
“As a long-term employee of Porter, he has demonstrated his commitment to this organization over the years,” said board chair Maureen McLaughlin in a statement announcing the appointment.
Kniffin spoke with Vermont Edition earlier in the week about the hospital’s future.
