Dave NorwineThe current median tenure of a hospital CEO in the United States is 3.6 years.Magruder Hospital's President and CEO Dave Norwine has almost quadrupled that statistic, marking his 14th year at Magruder's helm earlier this month.However, five years ago Dave made an important personal decision and shared it with his Board leadership.He told his Board he would be retiring in 2007, after working 30 years in senior management at Magruder.

"To me, 30 years is a career.There are things I still want to do and enjoy and I want to do them while I am still relatively young," says Dave.
Although most employees were surprised, Dave made the announcement early to give the Board of Trustees adequate time to find his replacement.The Board knew finding Dave's replacement was going to take a lot of planning and evaluation.
"Working with Dave over the years on the Board of Trustees has been a rewarding experience.
Growing up for the majority of his childhood in Oak Harbor, Dave attended Bowling Green State University (BGSU) after high school.It was there he studied many different fields of interest, including business and accounting, before ending up in his final major, history and political science.He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Education and went onto pursue a teaching career.
"I taught almost every social studies offering at the junior high and high school levels.Although I enjoyed teaching, it was the 60s and there were a lot of pertinent issues facing our country and society as a whole.I was interested in these ethical and theological issues, so I decided to go back to school in pursuit of a better frame of understanding."
After applying and being accepted to Andover Newton Theological School, the oldest graduate school of theology in the country, Dave left for Boston, Massachusetts to pursue is graduate degree in Theology.
"I completed my degree at the Methodist Theological School in Delaware, Ohio after deciding to come back to Ohio after three years in Boston, and was ordained a minister by the United Church of Christ in 1973.I served as a minister for five years before I decided I wanted to do something more."
Dave had a friend in the healthcare field and at his suggestion he looked into what would become his career for the next thirty years.
Dave interviewed for the job.
"I interviewed with Bob first and then with Ray Lambert, Chairman of Magruder's Board of Trustees at the time."
Dave was hired as the Assistant Administrator, which began his career in healthcare for the next thirty years.
Over the years Dave acquired oversight over additional departments.By the late 1980s, all departments in the hospital were reporting to him.He also kept his promise of becoming involved in the community and was active in numerous civic and service organizations over the years, including: Port Clinton Rotary Club, serving in numerous capacities and becoming a Paul Harris Fellow; Port Clinton City Schools Advisory Committees; American Cancer Society, serving as Vice-President of the Ottawa County Chapter in 1997; Tri-County Alcoholism Center Board of Directors, serving as the President for two years; the American Heart Association, serving as President of the Ottawa County Branch for two years; and both the Port Clinton and Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce Boards.
In 1993 Bob Dumminger retired, and the Board of Trustees chose Dave to be his successor as President and CEO, a position he has been working toward for sixteen years.
Although his career started out in an unconventional way, he never abandoned his teaching or ministry roots.Currently he is a member of the First United Church of Christ in Marblehead, serving the Church and congregation in capacities such as Deacon, Vice-Moderator, Moderator, and Chairman of the Stewardship Committee.Over the years he has also preached at over 30 churches in Northwest and Central Ohio.
Just last year he retired after 10 years of teaching at BGSU in the Undergraduate Healthcare Administration Program.He was instrumental in encouraging healthcare administration students to revitalize their student healthcare group and encouraged his healthcare colleagues at nearby facilities to open their hospitals to mentorship opportunities.At Magruder, seven BGSU students have completed their healthcare administration internship programs under his leadership.
Dave has worked cooperatively with physicians at Magruder to develop and incorporate a Physician-Hospital Organization (PHO).Since its inception in 1997, he has served as Vice-President of the PHO, Ottawa County CareNet, Ltd., and has helped the organization address issues and topics mutually affecting the hospital and its physicians.
"One of my greatest accomplishments has been the good fortune of bringing new physicians to our area community.This has been personally very rewarding for me."
But Magruder truly has a physician-friendly environment and this is because of Dave.
Within our area, Dave was instrumental in the creation of Community Care 5 (CC5), a limited liability company formed by Magruder, The Bellevue Hospital, Firelands Regional Medical Center, Fremont Memorial and Fisher Titus Medical Center.This organization has gained national attention and recognition for its blend of competition, mutual respect and collaboration with the ultimate goal of enhancing community healthcare.
In 2003, Dave earned his Fellow status with ACHE, furthering his goal of improving the health status of society by advancing healthcare leadership in management excellence.In 2004, Dave was honored with an Accomplished Graduate Award from BGSU in recognition of his service and dedication to promoting education within the healthcare field.He also recently received the Lighthouse Award from the Port Clinton Area Chamber of Commerce for outstanding contribution in his field of work.This year in June, he will be honored in Columbus with the Distinguished Service Award from the Ohio Hospital Association.
As for his replacement, the Board of Trustees, with the assistance of OHA Solutions, found a candidate that met their criteria.
Dave will remain at Magruder for the months of June and July as a liaison during the time of transition.
