WCH Adds IT Director

Corydon, April 20, 2011: Wayne County Hospital (WCH) is pleased to announce Wesley Shanks has joined our organization as the Information Technology Director. “Since coming on board March 7, 2011 Mr. Shanks has discovered WCH has a definite need for on-site IT services,” commented CEO, Daren Relph. “We have numerous systems running which require integration with other entities such as the Mercy system, our Healthland clinical and business office system and others, it takes a dedicated individual to manage the critical operation of these systems to keep them running with minimum downtime.”

Originally from Derby, Iowa, Wesley graduated as valedictorian of his Mormon Trail High School class.  He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration from Buena Vista University and his Associate of Arts degree in Computer Science from Indian Hills Community College.

Mr. Shanks spent the majority of his professional career working at Communications Data Services, Global in Des Moines for the past 14 years. His position involved program development for the in-house remittance processing system of a magazine fulfillment company.

In his spare time he enjoys spending time on the family farm raising 80 head of cattle. He also mows hay, grinds feed and would love to retire someday to be a crop farmer. When not at work or tending the farm, he enjoys spending time with this wife, Leslie (of South Central Iowa Medical Clinic) and their four children. He enjoys bowling, playing pool, camping and farming.

We are pleased to have Mr. Shanks join the Wayne County Hospital family and provide the valuable service he has to offer.
