STERLING — After nearly four decades of dedication, vision and commitment to the community, which has been responsible for bringing CGH to the level of excellence it enjoys today, Ed Andersen, CGH president/CEO, will retire.
Andersen joined CGH Medical Center in 1975 as the director of education. He moved from that position to the coordinator of human resources, then became the coordinator of general devices. He served as vice president and chief financial officer from 1980 until 1996, when he became CGH’s president/CEO.
“My time at CGH has been personally rewarding, and it is hard to leave that behind,” Andersen said. “Every day I walk into CGH I feel like I have the opportunity to carry on Christ’s work here on earth. CGH is filled with employees with incredible dedication, compassion and empathy – they make a real difference in the lives of our patients and community. It has been my great privilege to work with them in our healing mission.”
To commemorate Andersen’s retirement, a community open house celebration will be held Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. in the lobby of the CGH Main Clinic, 101 E. Miller Road, Sterling. Light refreshments will be served. The community is invited.
