The head of a real estate development company, Brooks Resources, is heading to St. Charles Medical Center. After 17 years, Kirk Schueller is leaving Brooks Resources to be the Bend hospital's Chief Administrative Officer. Schueller sees similarities with both jobs, though they're in different industries: “Real estate is slogging through. And here we have healthcare; beginning of new healthcare. So they're both going through transition in both industries. So I’m going out of the frying pan into the fire. I don't know.” Schueller's position at St. Charles is a created post , part of a larger hospital alignment. He will start at the Hospital in mid January.
