For the last two years, Michael Kiley has served as the chairman of the board for HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital. He joined the board in 2012 after retiring as circuit judge of Shelby County.
Kiley said, “I first received a call from Larry Dilley asking me if I was interested. By that time, my wife, father-in-law and uncle had all served on the board. Our local hospital was very important to our family, and it was the perfect opportunity for me to serve.”
He first served as the board secretary and was elected vice chairman in 2014. Kiley was named chairman in 2015.
He was heavily involved in making the decision to become part of Hospital Sisters Health System and its transition to HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital.
At the January meeting of the HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital board, Kiley passed the job to Josh Shallenberger.
“It’s been an exciting time and opportunity to serve as the chairman of the board,” said Kiley. “I will always appreciate and remember those involved over the years. I was blessed to work with so many talented board members and two great CEOs. Some of those talented people include Marilyn Sears, Bob Pancoast and John Freeman, and that is only a few of the many I respected while having this position. I appreciated the importance of the hospital to the community, and it was a wonderful opportunity to serve with so many bright people as we worked through the avenues of change. It was always interesting to hear from others’ points of view. The group I had the privilege to serve with made it a pleasure to do the work. Josh will be a wonderful chairman. I have every confidence in him.”
Josh Shallenberger said, “The board of HSHS Good Shepherd extends its thanks to Mike Kiley for his tenure as chairman of the board. We could not have had a more able-bodied leader to see us through Shelby Memorial Hospital’s new affiliation with Hospital Sisters Health Systems. HSHS offers our community convenient access to top-tier physician and emergency services. Shelby County’s future is bright and HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital is a key component of that outlook. I look forward to having a role in our communities’ success.”
