CONCORD, N.H. (AP) —

An administrator for nursing facilities in the state has been named CEO of New Hampshire Hospital, the state Department of Health and Human Services said.

Heather Moquin, who has been chief operating officer at the hospital, succeeds Lori Shibinette, who has been appointed department chief.

“Her understanding of the hospital’s operations and her deep clinical experience make her ideally suited to be the next CEO,” Shibinette said in a statement Monday.

Moquin has 25 years of clinical and operational experience in New Hampshire. She has worked in healthcare since beginning her career as an LNA in 1989. Prior to joining New Hampshire Hospital, she held positions as a nursing home administrator, director of nursing, and clinical services director at nursing facilities in the state. She began her career as a Registered Nurse with the Merrimack County Nursing Home.

Moquin’s tenure as CEO took effect on Feb. 1. New Hampshire Hospital is a 168-bed facility that provides acute, inpatient psychiatric services for children and adults needing active treatment and other essential supports within a continuum of community-based care.
