Last week, Mammoth Hospital issued a short statement saying that CEO Gary Boyd had taken a “leave of absence for medical reasons.” Boyd had a stroke on Sunday, Nov. 4 and was hospitalized in Reno.
According to information from Gary’s wife, Barbara, Tuesday morning Gary began to wake with less agitation, so needed less sedation. He improved as the day went on. By the end of the day he began chatting and worrying about work. About 8 p.m. he was sitting up and stated he was ready to go home.
Wednesday morning he was much clearer. He was able to eat lunch and dinner.
Gary has no paralysis, his only problem now is his speech and some memory, which improves daily.
According to a statement from Mammoth Hospital, Gary was transferred out of ICU on Thursday.
The Sheet wishes Boyd a speedy recovery. While we typically give administrators a hard time, we think Boyd is an exceptional CEO.
