Art Frable Will Be Humboldt General Hospital's New Chief Executive Officer

September 13, the Humboldt County Hospital District Board of Trustees took less than 10 minutes to decide to ask Art Frable to lead Humboldt General Hospital as its next chief.

And it took less than two days for Frable to agree, pending contract negotiations; he is expected to begin his new position before year’s end.

Frable was one of two final candidates for the job, down from six potentials who each expressed interest in leading the $80 million healthcare facility.

Following a Skype interview, Frable was invited to come to Humboldt General Hospital for two days of on-site meetings with employees, medical staff and community members.

The evening of September 11, the board conducted an in-person interview; two days later they unanimously voted to offer Frable the job.

Frable has more than three decades of experience in senior healthcare administration in rural acute care hospitals and the physician clinic environment.

He holds a Master of Business Administration (MBA) with an emphasis in healthcare administration from Temple University. Additionally, he is a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives.

Frable previously held positions as CEO of Bob Wilson Memorial Grant County Hospital in Ulysses, Kansas; CEO of Muskogee Community Hospital in Muskogee, Oklahoma; CEO of Howard County Medical Center in St. Paul, Nebraska; and, CEO of Southeast Arizona Regional Medical Center in Douglas, Arizona.

He also served as a pastor for 10 years in eastern Pennsylvania where he worked with both large and small groups of people from all economic, social and educational backgrounds.

Frable is an active member of Rotary International and is a past president of both the Chamber of Commerce and Lions Club International. He plans to be very engaged in the Humboldt County community and said he will find ways to reach out, not only to meet local residents but to tackle long-term issues that may have resulted in a sense of distrust between the hospital and its stakeholders.

Frable’s wife will join him in Winnemucca. Local residents might spot them soon traversing town on their tandem bike. In addition to biking, the two enjoy spending time with their three grown sons and their families, including 13 grandchildren.
