Ladenburger’s leave-taking

Most of the thousands of people who will utilize the state-of-the-art medical services in the new, 12-story tower that is the most visible feature of St. Mary’s Hospital’s Century Project will never know Bob Ladenburger’s name.

That’s too bad, because Ladenburger was instrumental in shepherding the Century Project from conception to completion. But, as important as that bricks-and-mortar project is, Ladenburger deserves to be remembered for much more.

He has been a steady, reliable leader for the region’s largest hospital during his 10 years at the helm of St. Mary’s. He’s been a knowledgeable and forward-looking leader in the local health care community. He’s been a participant in community organizations outside of health care. And, he’s a genuinely nice guy.

But Ladenburger is leaving. Tomorrow he will assume the duties of CEO of Exempla Health Care in Denver, which is associated with the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth that runs St. Mary’s.

We wish Ladenburger the best with his new endeavor, and we hope he hasn’t taken a handful of Grand Valley soil with him to overcome the Ute Curse. We’d like to see him return to this area one day.
