Enloe Announces New Vice President of Human Resources

Shannon Smith

CHICO, Calif., June 30, 2021 — Shannon Smith will take the reins as vice president of Human Resources and chief compliance officer at Enloe Medical Center starting July 1.

In this role, she will oversee the Human Resources, Recruiting Services, Volunteer Services, Employee Health and Corporate Compliance departments. Smith said she looks forward to continuing to grow in her role and support the work of Enloe employees and physicians.

“With her leadership skills and talents, Shannon Smith will do a great job,” said Mike Wiltermood, Enloe’s President and CEO.

Smith brings 20 years of experience in human resources. She started out at a large emergency physician group in the Sacramento area, working in recruiting and human resources. After joining Enloe in 2005 as nurse recruiter, she began working in management roles in Enloe’s Recruiting Services in 2008. Smith became director of Staff and Physician Recruiting in 2016 and director of Human Resources in 2020.

She replaces Carol Linscheid, who retires this month after serving as vice president since December 2004. Linscheid has also worked as chief compliance officer since October 2013.

“Carol Linscheid’s tenure has been marked by vastly improved employee relationships and morale. She has been instrumental in guiding decisions on quality working conditions, competitive salary and benefits, and consistent adherence to labor law,” Wiltermood said. “Most importantly, she has built an outstanding Human Resources department, which will benefit our organization for years to come.”

Smith graduated from California State University, Chico, with a bachelor’s in social science. She received a master’s in communication from Arizona State. A member of the Society of Human Resources Management, Smith lives in Chico with her husband and two children.
