Daly, one of three candidates considered for the position, has been CEO of Blue Mountain Hospital District in John Day, Ore., for five and a half years.

Daly said he was “born a Badger” in Madison, Wis., before growing up in eastern South Dakota. He attended Augustana University in Sioux Falls, S.D., where he received an undergraduate degree in business administration before obtaining his master’s degree in health administration from the University of Iowa in Iowa City.
