Sharp named to ‘CEOs to know’ list

Boone County Health Center (BCHC) President and CEO Tanya Sharp has again been named Becker’s Healthcare’s CEO to Know. Sharp is one of just two Nebraska healthcare CEOs to receive this honor.
“The men and women included on this list lead organizations which are regularly recognized for patient safety and quality. Becker’s Healthcare compiled this list through nominations and editorial research,” wrote Laura Dyrda of Becker’s Hospital Review.
Sharp has more than 10 years of experience in health care administration, previously acting as CEO for a 25-bed hospital and rural health clinic in North Dakota. She joined BCHC in 2015 as Chief Financial Officer and rose to CEO in 2017 upon Vic Lee’s retirement.
During her first year as CEO, Sharp orchestrated an in-depth strategic plan. She also carried BCHC through a master facility plan and oversaw the building of a new satellite clinic in Newman Grove.
“Tanya is an ambitious CEO, and her proactive approach will allow the Health Center to offer quality health care to local residents for many years to come,” said BCHC Board President Don Casper.
Sharp earned her bachelor’s degree in healthcare administration from Minnesota State University-Moorhead and has nearly completed her Masters in healthcare administration from Bellevue University. She is a graduate of the Nebraska Hospital Association Leadership Institute and now serves as a mentor to other health care executives enrolled in the program.
Sharp’s peers elected her to serve on the National Rural Health Association board where she is a voice for all of Nebraska on important rural health care issues.
