Bemidji Veterans Home Administrator selected

Kevin Gish was selected as the administrator of the future Bemidji Veterans Home.

The Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs says that Gish has more than 30 years of administrative and operational experience in healthcare, working for United Healthcare, North Memorial, North Country Regional Hospital, Essentia Health, and Health Dimensions Group.

Gish is a Bemidji State graduate and received his master’s from U of M. He’s lived in the area since 1995 and is originally from Mahnomen.

Until the Home opens next summer, Gish and his leadership team will be working in a temporary community office space at the Westridge Commerce Center.

Gish will be involved with ongoing planning as well as participating in the interviewing and selection of other leaders in the coming weeks and months.
