After several controversies and harsh criticism from the public and County Commission, UMC CEO, Kathy Silver announced her resignation from the county's only public hospital in May.
 
Brian Brannman, who served as COO under Silver was announced as her replacement on July 1. Brannman's experience in the medical field include stints as president and Commanding Officer of Navy Medicine West and Commanding Officer of Naval Medical Center in San Diego, Calif. Brian Brannman steps into a position where his two predecessors battled massive budget problems and a County Commission that's struggled to find a way to make the hospital fiscally solvent while still providing indigent care for the public.
 
Brian Brannman joins us to discuss his vision for UMC's future.
