(KNSI) — The director of St. Cloud VA Healthcare Systems has announced his retirement.

We focused on establishing a lean management system.”
Selene was also at the helm during the COVID-19 pandemic. “When I arrived here in September 2019, I wanted to continue our commitment to high reliability in our organization. I never thought it would drain our lives, but the hard work and dedication of our team has made it possible to continue providing excellent care to our veterans in the face of the pandemic, and to continue to provide them with the highest level of trust. We have made significant strides in our commitment to sexuality and our Saint Cloud management system,” he said.
