Carroll County Memorial Hospital will hold a Retirement Celebration for Jeff Tindle from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, June 11. The reception will be open to the community.
Tindle announced his retirement, effective June 30, 2021, from Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of CCMH earlier this year.
“I have always maintained that I wanted to retire when I still loved what I do and not when I was told by others it is time,” Tindle said. “Having said that, it was a very tough decision, because I truly cherish all of the staff at CCMH and the communities we serve, especially Carrollton; however, I am ready to spend more time with Tammie and our family, along with pursuing other interests that I have not been able to devote time and energy.”
The retirement event, being held in a tent outside Carroll County Memorial Hospital, will include a come-and-go reception from 4 to 5:30 p.m., and a program following at 5:30 p.m.
Tindle began his service at Carroll County Memorial Hospital as Associate Administrator and Chief Financial Officer in September 2007. He was promoted to CEO in November 2011.
