International Falls, MN (May 18, 2016) –
Rainy Lake Medical Center (RLMC) recently announced that Bonnie Erickson was hired as RLMC’s new Chief Executive Officer.

Erickson, a former RLMC board member who previously served as CEO from 2006 to 2009, was hired to fill the position, vacated by Dan Odegaard, whose contract ended on May 12. The transition in management will be seamless, due to Erickson’s familiarity with RLMC and its processes and campus. She and the Board of Trustees, management team, and employees will work together to continue moving Rainy Lake Medical Center forward by providing high-level healthcare locally.

“For two years, Dan was at the helm, and during that time he made a lot of positive changes and enhanced the level of care we are able to provide today,” said Susan Congrave, Chairperson of the RLMC Board of Trustees. “We’re excited to start this new chapter as we continue providing comprehensive, community-owned, and community-directed healthcare to International Falls and the surrounding communities,” Congrave added.

RLMC offers urgent care, emergency care, surgery, cardiology rehab and diagnostics, chemo and infusion therapy, radiology, labor and delivery, therapy services, audiology, pharmacy, and laboratory services. For more information, visit
