Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital's new CEO settling in, loving life in the valley

John Bishop

John Bishop counts himself as a fortunate man.

In his first two months as Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital’s new CEO, Bishop has had a chance to get to know the people and the place that he is charged to lead.

So far, all that he’s seen has left him feeling impressed and confident in his decision to take on a position that had been held by one person for the last 30 years.

When former CEO John Bartos announced his plans to retire, the hospital board initially had 144 applicants for the position.

Following an intense interview process, the board’s chairman, Bill Bean, said Bishop came through the process “head and shoulders above the rest.”

“It was quite a process that we went through,” Bean said. “It took us about a year. We are extremely pleased to have him here. Our job now as board of directors is to make him as successful as he possibly can be…We know we chose the right guy. There’s no question about that.”

Bishop’s roots run deep in Montana.

He grew up in the Gallatin Valley and received his bachelor’s degree in accounting from Montana State University. His first job out of college was working at Murdoch Ranch and Home Supply headquarters in Bozeman.

His life took a different path with the birth of his first child.
