Warren Yehl has been named the permanent chief executive officer (CEO) of Eastern New Medical Center effective immediately. Yehl has served as interim CEO since last fall and previously served as the hospital’s COO from 2013 to 2015.

“Over the last several months, I’ve worked closely with the talented physicians and caregivers at Eastern New Mexico Medical Center, and I am honored to be able to continue to do so,” Yehl said. “Eastern New Mexico Medical Center is an important community resource that provides needed healthcare services.”

Yehl most recently served as COO at Mountain View Regional Medical Center in Las Cruces. During his tenure, Yehl led capital projects such as the integration of an Urgent Care, installation of two new Cath Labs, and development of New Mexico’s first Free Standing Emergency Room. He previously served in administrative leadership roles at hospitals in Brownwood and Victoria, Texas.

Yehl is deeply committed to working together with the board of trustees, medical staff and hospital employees to build on the quality care and service provided to patients. Over the last several months, he has been instrumental in supporting the hospital’s growth in numbers of patients who received inpatient care, surgeries and cardiac services. Under his leadership, ENMMC has also successfully maintained the Chest Pain Center recertification and signed a new General Surgeon who will start in September 2018.

“Warren has strong leadership experience and a long history of serving Eastern New Mexico Medical Center,” said Eloise Blake, President of the Board of Trustee of Eastern New Mexico Medical Center. “He will help us continue to build on the firm foundation of our hospital to deliver quality, compassionate care.”
