Idaho Falls, ID - Rick Goodwin has been promoted to Director of Program Development at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center.
Rick has been with EIRMC for 10 years, most recently as Director of Therapy Services (which encompasses Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Employee Health, Wound Care and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy) and the hospital is fortunate to further benefit from his expertise as he steps back from day to day clinical management to take on new responsibilities of helping to shape overall strategy.
Rick has an M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology and brings over 20 years of management and clinical experience to a newly-created position focused on innovation, development and creation of new approaches to improve the health and well-being of the communities EIRMC serves..
Professionally, Rick is well-published in the rehabilitation and therapy field, and a frequently-invited guest lecturer and speaker at local, state and regional conferences. He has served as an adjunct faculty member for several universities, and his guiding philosophy has always been that “If we focus on the patient, we will always do the right thing.” This makes Rick not only an asset, but a perfect “fit” for the senior leadership team at EIRMC as the hospital continually focuses on improving the patient experience.
Mileen Langley Selected for Director of Therapy Services
Mileen Langley will fill the position vacated by Goodwin and is impressive and experienced in her own right. Mileen has served EIRMC for 17 years, and prior to her current promotion, served as Manager of Therapy Services. EIRMC is pleased to be able to promote from within to maintain continuity of service, and to benefit from Mileen’s professional growth and commitment to excellence in the hospital’s Therapy Services program.
Mileen has long-demonstrated a proactive and innovative clinical approach to therapy through innovative and field-advancing projects. She has been particularly effective in promoting and sharing knowledge of advanced wound healing techniques through her leadership of the annual EIRMC Wound Care Conference in Idaho Falls, drawing hundreds of caregivers from rural practice environments, and facilitating access to the most leading-edge advances in the field to better serve their own communities. Mileen’s record of leadership, innovation and generous sharing of expertise is proof positive that the expanded responsibilities she inherits have been placed in the right hands.
