Former Alegent Health president reappointed

OMAHA, NE (KWWL) -- The former president of Alegent Health has been reappointed to the position he left last year.

Richard Hachten II had been serving as interim leader of Nebraska's largest health care company since president and CEO Wayne Sensor resigned in October. Alegent announced this week that Hachten's been brought on permanently.

Hachten was president of Alegent from its founding in 1996 until his retirement in April 2009.

Alegent has given no reason for Sensor's sudden departure last fall. It came soon after votes of no confidence in Alegent management from doctors at two of its Omaha hospitals.

Alegent says it is the largest not-for-profit, faith-based health care system in Nebraska and southwest Iowa and employs about 9,000 people.
