NORTON, Kan. – Norton County Hospital is pleased to announce it has hired Ken Fisher as its new Chief Financial Officer. He and his wife, Jenn (both pictured), are in the process of moving to Norton, and he will begin his duties in March 2021.
Fisher received a degree in accounting from Washington State University. He has 30 years of experience in health care finance, as he has worked at four different critical access hospitals (like Norton County Hospital) and even a large, 800-bed hospital.
“I am looking forward to becoming part of and working with the team at NCH,” Fisher said. “I am excited to share my knowledge and experience. I am always looking at ways to run more efficiently without sacrificing quality and of course always looking for opportunities to be more profitable.”
Fisher was born in Tonasket, Washington, which is located in the north-central part of the state approximately 20 miles from the Canadian border. There, he grew up on a farm where his dad grew apples and pears. He has one younger brother and one younger sister.
When not working, Fisher plays and watches all kinds of sports – football, baseball, basketball and golf. He enjoys snow and water skiing, as well as fishing and traveling. The Fishers have five children: Tyler, Dustin, Shelby, Gracie and Matthew.
Norton County Hospital is excited to add Ken Fisher to the team and welcome the Fishers as part of the Norton community.
