Confluence Health, the largest healthcare provider in North Central Washington, is eliminating the position of Chief Operating Officer (COO).

In a memo to staff, the organization cited economic and restructuring reasons for this decision. The move comes after Confluence Health implemented cost-cutting measures last October following a $4 million loss in the previous month and a $16 million loss over the course of a year.

The restructuring efforts also include recruiting for a new leadership position focused on enhancing outpatient services. The aim is to strengthen primary care redesign and improve patient access.

Adam MacDonald, Confluence Health's Corporate Communications Program Manager, stated that the new leadership role will bring unique skills to support ongoing efforts in outpatient services.

The memo, issued by CEO Andrew Jones, assured staff members that no further restructuring is planned at this time. It also noted that the outgoing COO, Glenn Adams, held the position since 2020 and had been with Confluence Health, Wenatchee Valley Hospital, and Central Washington Hospital since 1999. Confluence Health operates Central Washington Hospital, the Wenatchee Valley Hospital and Clinics Campus, and multiple clinics and offices in Chelan, Douglas, Okanogan, and Grant counties.
