ST. THOMAS, USVI: CEO hired for Schneider RMC
Virgin Islands Daily News, March 8, 2010
After searching for more than a year, the Schneider Regional Medical Center board has hired Alice Taylor, who served most recently as COO of Broward General Medical Center and Chris Evert Children's Hospital in Fort Lauderdale, FL, to be its new CEO. Taylor's salary will be $310,000, a substantial increase from her pay at Broward General. She also will receive a moving stipend of up to $40,000 and a government-issued vehicle as part of her three-year contract with the hospital. She was selected from a field of more than 80 candidates. The board paid the Atlanta-based executive search firm Tyler & Company just over $100,000 to vet the applicants and whittle the field down to eight finalists. On April 5, Taylor will take over for Interim CEO Elizabeth Harris, who has run the hospital for more than a year since a corruption scandal led to the installation of new executives and board members at the hospital.
