David O'Brien, MD, a former Eureka family practice physician, has officially been given the job of president of St. Joseph Health -- Humboldt County, which includes both St. Joe's and Redwood Memorial hospitals.

In a press release issued yesterday, O'Brien, who received his bachelor's and medical degrees at U.C. Davis, said he's happy to be back on the North Coast.

"I have a strong connection to Humboldt County – this is where I first started practicing medicine and I raised my family here," O'Brien said.

Last year, hospital CEO Joe Mark resigned after six years on the job. His resignation was announced on the heels of 68 layoffs at the two hospitals.

O'Brien has been serving as the hospital's interim president since February.
