POLSON – There’s a new man in charge at a Polson hospital.

Devin Huntley was recently named Chief Operating Officer at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Polson. He began earlier this month, replacing interim administrator Lynn Weddle.

Huntley was born and raised in Missoula and graduated from Hellgate High School. He has a bachelor’s degree and an MBA in hospital administration from the University of Arizona and served in the United States Army.

Huntley spent 15 years at Community Medical Center in Missoula focusing on education, rural outreach, business development and operations.

He most recently helped guide strategy as a board member at Clark Fork Valley Hospital in Plains.

“As a Western Montana native (born at St. Pat’s), I’m thrilled to roll up my sleeves and immerse myself in the Polson community,” Huntley said in a statement.

“I am humbled and honored to lead the incredible team of physicians and caregivers at St. Joe’s. Providing exceptional health care in a rural community comes with many opportunities and challenges. Together, we are up to the task.”

Huntley is married and has two daughters. He enjoys hunting, fishing and hockey.
