Initial reports were that Singer had stepped down from a separate position as CEO at Blue Mountain Hospital in Blanding. Officials at Blue Mountain Hospital turned down several requests to comment on the developments.
After the press deadline, hospital officials stated that there was no change in Singer’s status at the hospital.
The San Juan Record apologizes for any problems that may have been caused by the confusion.
Singer has been the driving force behind the creation of a new health system in San Juan County, including the development of Blue Mountain Hospital and Utah Navajo Health System.
Utah Navajo Health System was created in 2000 and currently operates clinics and outreach efforts through four health centers.
Blue Mountain Hospital opened in Blanding in July, 2009. The 11-bed Critical Access Hospital offers emergency services, surgical services, obstetrics, radiology, laboratory, physical therapy, Renal Dialysis, and other healthcare services.
Singer has served as CEO of both organizations for several years.
Michael Jensen has been named as the CEO to replace Singer. Jensen has been involved in the delivery of health care services in several capacities, including serving as Chief Operations Officer at Utah Navajo Health Systems.
