A prominent name at SSM Health St. Marys Hospital Audrain is now stepping down. David Neuendorf announced that at the end of April he will be stepping down from his position as President of the hospital. The hospital and medical clinic network have grown along with the community since Dave took the reigns at the hospital. During Neuendorfs tenure he has helped with the creation of the J.B. and Greeta B. Arthur Cancer Center, the Jordan Waters Heart Center, expansion of the Audrain Medical Center Foundation and the search for a health system partner, which resulted in the hospital joining St. Louis-based SSM Health in April 2013.
SSM Health will begin a national search for Neuendorfs replacement immediately. In the interim, Brent VanConia, SSM Health Regional President, will serve as acting President until a new President is found.
