Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, the commissioner of human services may appoint a hospital administrator at any state hospital. Such hospital administrator shall be a graduate of an accredited college giving a course leading to a degree in hospital administration and the commissioner of human services, by rule, shall designate such colleges which in the opinion of the commissioner give an accredited course in hospital administration. The provisions of this section shall not apply to any chief executive officer now appointed to that position who on July 1, 1963, is neither a physician and surgeon nor a graduate of a college giving a degree in hospital administration. In addition to a hospital administrator, the commissioner of human services may appoint a licensed doctor of medicine as chief of the medical staff who shall be in charge of all medical care, treatment, rehabilitation and research.
