New Kalispell Regional CEO promises transparency

Former North Dakota health-care administrator Craig Lambrecht has officially assumed his role as Kalispell Regional Healthcare’s new chief executive officer, bringing with him more than 16 years of experience in health-care leadership and ambitious plans for the organization.

Lambrecht’s propensity for leadership began long before he launched into the business side of health care in 2002 as a senior chief medical officer with the North Dakota Department of Health. It began during his 30 years spent with the U.S. National Guard, where he served as a soldier and commander and was deployed three times.

Above all, he said his time in military service taught him selflessness and sacrifice — two traits he said continue to guide his work.
