GARRISON, N.D.–Funeral services will be held tomorrow (Thursday) for former Prairie Lakes Healthcare System (PLHS) CEO Jill Fuller.

She passed away Sunday at her home in Garrison, North Dakota.

Fuller joined PLHS as its Chief Nursing Officer in 2000. She was named CEO in 2009.

Fuller announced her retirement in November 2017, at which time she said, “I’m proud of our achievements. In the last eight years, we have developed seven new service lines which improved access and medical outcomes for the people we serve. Our growth has been impressive and good for our community. I have been honored to serve with incredibly dedicated and talented professionals who take our healthcare mission seriously. They have achieved outstanding improvements in quality and patient safety.”

Fuller left PLHS in 2018, after PLHS named K.C. DeBoer as its new CEO. Fuller then moved with her husband to their cabin in North Dakota.

Jill Fuller died after battling cancer. She was 69 years old.
