I was surprised and not surprised, all in one, when I got the news from Dave Callecod ’89, a member of Wabash’s alumni board, that he would be moving from running Marion (IN) General Hospital to become president and CEO of Lafayette General Medical Center in Lafayette, Louisiana. Basically, he’ll be running a four-hospital regional system in the south central part of the state.

Dave has been super successful at Marion General and the hospital has garnered a number of awards. †He’s built a great team and they have really flourished during tough economic times. I knew a bigger operation would come looking…and that’s what’s happened.

Dave’s about to learn an entirely new accent and taste for food. We wish him the best!
