An Alagasco vice president for technical services,

service," Baptist interim chairman Aubrey Miller says in a statement
accompanying a release announcing Putnam's appointment.
Putnam has been with the natural gas distributor
since 1984. The Gadsden native earned a bachelor's degree in industrial
engineering from Auburn and a master's degree in business administration from
Jacksonville State University. He now lives in Vestavia Hills.
Baptist is reconstituting its board after months of
turmoil in which a former board chairman resigned and another was forced out.
The board shuffle follows canceled talks that involved selling the hospital to a
proprietary hospital company or forming a joint venture.
