The hospital's chief operating and financial officer, James Chaney, was appointed as acting administrator of the 20-bed facility in Forks, about 55 miles west of Port Angeles.
Forks Community Hospital is the city's single largest employer with 195 employees.
McMillan took over as the hospital's administrator Dec. 3, 2012. He previously was the chief executive officer for the Curry Health District in Gold Beach, Ore.
