Valley Vista Care welcomed a new administrator with a familiar face this past week.
Randal Barnes was the administrator of nursing from 1998 to 1999. He now returns to the post following the promotion of former administrator Chuck Lloyd, recently promoted to CEO of Valley Vista Care.
Mr. Barnes said he left to pursue a desire to travel while continuing in administration.
“I worked in Payette, Caldwell, Meridian, Boise, Montana and Oregon,” Mr. Barnes said.
He returned to St. Maries from Meridian for the position.
“I’m glad to be back and be a part of the community,” Mr. Barnes said.
Mr. Barnes possesses a bachelor’s degree in Healthcare Administration from Idaho State University and more than 20 years of experience.
“I’m looking forward to being a part of the reconstruction here and continuing to provide quality care for the residents,” Mr. Barnes said.
Valley Vista Care, St. Maries will undergo a $2.5 million renovation expected to be complete summer 2020. See the June 19, edition or gazetterecord.com for the details.
