Randy McCleese CHCIO, VP of IS and CIO at St. Claire Regional Medical Center in Kentucky; and Melinda Costin, VP at Baylor Health Care System in Dallas, have been elected to the CHIME Board of Trustees.
McCleese has more than 24 years of IS management experience, with 16 years in healthcare. He has been a member of CHIME since 1998, serving on numerous working groups, including the CHIME Membership Committee, Fall and Spring Forum Planning Committees, and CHIME Education Foundation Fundraising Committee. Currently McCleese is an active member of CHIME’s Advocacy Leadership Team and is the StateNet Coordinator for Kentucky. He is also heavily involved with the CHIME Certified Healthcare CIO (CHCIO) Program, serving as a participant in the item writing process, the passing point panel, item and scenario review group, and most recently the CHCIO Governing Board. McCleese is the recipient of the 2009 inaugural CHIME State Advocacy Award.
With over 35 years of healthcare experience, Costin has been a part of CHIME — as both a Foundation member and now as a CHIME member — for over 10 years. A graduate of the CHIME Healthcare CIO Boot Camp, she has served on both the CHIME Membership Committee and CHIME Fall Forum Planning Committee.
McCleese and Costin — who replace vacant seats left by outgoing Board members David Muntz and Lynn Vogel — will begin their three-year terms starting on Jan. 1.
