New Chief Administrative Officer Named For Marshfield Medical Center Beaver Dam

(Beaver Dam) Marshfield Medical Center-Beaver Dam has a new chief administrative officer. Angelia Foster has accepted the position, effective March 2.

Foster has more than eight years of health care leadership experience, including her current role as executive vice president/chief administrative officer at Community Hospitals and Wellness Centers in Bryan, Ohio. Prior to her time in Bryan, Foster worked for Memorial Health System in Jacksonville, Illinois as the affiliate vice president of Human Resources and Support Services.

Foster received her master’s in management and organizational behavior from Benedictine University in Lisle, Illinois and bachelor’s in political science and communications from Ohio Dominican University in Columbus, Ohio.

Foster says she looks forward to (quote) “collaborating with community stakeholders and dedicated staff to ensure residents in Dodge County and beyond have access to the highest quality health care possible.”

Foster will partner with interim CAO Joe Gilene as she transitions into the new role. Gilene came to Beaver Dam in March 2019 and guided the organization through its affiliation with Marshfield Clinic Health System, which was finalized in May, and during the ensuing integration process. Gilene’s demonstrated history of enhancing strong integrated systems and achieving excellent operational and financial results has proven valuable to the organization over the past 11 months, and he was recently named a “Rural Hospital CEO to Know” by Becker’s Hospital Review.
