Kentucky Hospital Association President and CEO Mike Rust plans to retire at the end of 2019 after leading the association for 24 years. “Mike has been an invaluable part of KHA during his tenure,” said Jane Wheatley, chair of the KHA Board and president of Taylor Regional Hospital in Campbellsville. “He has enhanced the organization at every level and been a unifying force for hospitals throughout the commonwealth. The KHA Board and I are immensely grateful for his service.” The board will conduct a national search for his successor.
