Staff Writer

Veronica Schmidt is the new President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Melham Medical Clinic in Broken Bow. Her first day on the new job is today, Monday, Jan. 15, 2018.

She said she immediately fell in love with Broken Bow and the area when she was here for interviews last year. “It’s a forward thinking community. You could feel it,” she said.

Schmidt comes to Broken Bow and Melham from Custer, S.D., and the Custer Regional Medical Center. She and her husband, Troy, have three children, Emme, Maya and Roman.

She has already had a chance to meet some important people in the community - firemen, policemen and EMS - when emergency personnel responded to a call at the hospital earlier today. The call turned out to be a freon leak.
