LAS VEGAS, N.M. (AP) - The new head of the New Mexico Behavioral Health Institute says she’s going to strive to reduce staff turnover.

The Las Vegas Optic reports (https://bit.ly/2bCdVuO ) that 64-year-old Frances Tweed, herself only two weeks into the job as the 352-bed facility’s executive director of administration, says the institute’s 712 employees need to be stable for the facility to thrive.

Tweed replaces Dr. Troy Jones, who in April after seven years at the helm accepted an administrator’s position with a state hospital in South Dakota.

After 13 years with the Hot Springs Boulevard hospital tweed says she’s excited to carry on Jones legacy.
