HMS announces new adminstrators

The Hill Top Home of Comfort in Killdeer and the Richardton Health Center will each have a new administrator, according to a release from Health Management Services, the company that manages both health care centers.

Former Richardton Health Center Administrator Gerry Leadbetter will take on the same role at the Killdeer facility while Megan Pritzl will be the new administrator in Richardton.

Prior to his work in Richardton, Leadbetter worked at Aneta Parkview Health Center. Pritzl was most recently employed at Hospice of the Red River Valley in Fargo. Leadbetter is originally from the Finley area while Pritzl is a Fargo native.

"We believe we have two good administrators who will provide effective leadership to these facilities," said HMS Chief Operating Officer for North Dakota Alan O'Neil. "Both are native North Dakotans who understand the culture and challenges that go along with managing a rural health care facility."

Leadbetter began in his new position earlier this month while Pritzl has a start date of April 8.
