State Mental Hospital in Larned Gets Interim Leader

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas has hired a consultant who specializes in temporary hospital management assignments to serve as the interim superintendent of the state mental hospital in Larned. The Department on Aging and Disability Services announced Wednesday that Chris Mattingly has been named to the job by interim Secretary Timothy Keck. Mattingly started Monday. Mattingly is an Oklahoma City-area management consultant who's served as a temporary CEO, chief financial officer or chief operating officer at numerous hospitals. He most recently worked in El Dorado. Keck cited Mattingly's lengthy experience in hospital management. The Larned hospital in western Kansas has faced staffing and budget problems. Superintendent Tom Kinlen resigned in March. KDADS Behavioral Health Commissioner Bill Rein has served as interim superintendent since then. Mattingly is expected to remain interim superintendent for about six months.
