SPEARFISH, S.D. - Regional Health has appointed Thomas Worsley as interim president of Regional Health Spearfish Hospital and the Spearfish and Belle Fourche Market.

Worsley was appointed to the position after the recent death of longtime President Larry W. Veitz, who had led the Spearfish and Belle Fourche Market since 2002. Veitz was killed Nov. 4 in an ATV accident.

“Larry would want the organization to continue the momentum we are generating to reach our vision to be the best health care system in America,” said Brent Phillips, Regional Health President and CEO. “Thomas is one of Regional Health’s dynamic leaders that strive for excellence.”

Worsley has been with Regional Health since 2015. He currently serves as vice president of the Regional Health Rapid City Market. His responsibilities have included perioperative service areas, Anesthesia, the Same Day Surgery Center and the specialty clinics located in Regional Health Medical Clinic – 5th Street.

“Larry built a great team in the Northern Hills. I’m honored to continue building on the foundation of delivering quality care in Spearfish, Belle Fourche, Buffalo, Newcastle, Wyo., Upton, Wyo. and surrounding areas,” Worsley said.

Before joining Regional Health, Worsley was with the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee.
