LDS CEO Runs Hospital 'Humanely'
Las Vegas NV Review-Journal 11Apr00 P2
By Matthew Crowley: Review-Journal

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- Another Mormon in the news for the good that he is doing. This time its the story of Mark Howard, the CEO of Columbia/HCA MountainView Hospital in Las Vegas, NV. He attended Snow College, BYU, and UCLA, ending up with a masters degree in hospital administration. After spending time in the Air Force and over two decades in the health care sector in Utah, he was hired at his current job.

"Here's a guy who comes out of nonprofit sector in Utah, comes here to for-profit center in a (comparatively) hard-bitten place, and runs it humanely," said Mitch Keamy, an doctor at the hospital. "He runs a Columbia hospital for a corporation not known for warmheartedness and puts on a clinic."

The article notes that Howard brings a caring and hardworking ethic from his days on the farm in Idaho. Besides his hospital job, he serves as chairman of the Bighorn BSA District, as an officer in the American College of Healthcare Executives, and has a family of wife and four children. Howard sums up devotion to family with the quote "There's no other success in life that can compensate for failure at home," Howard said. "I really believe that."
