At the Friday, April 28, 2017, Gila Regional Medical Center Board of Trustees meeting, Interim Chief Executive Officer Alfredo Ontiveros recognized Pat Nesbitt, who was with Gila Regional overseeing facilities for 10 years. He recently resigned and went to work for Hidalgo Medical Services.

"My second announcement is that Carrie Young, who has been our counsel, has submitted her resignation," Ontiveros said. "She will take the uniform bar exam, so she is able to work anywhere with her Juris Doctor degree. She is also a nurse."
