CINCINNATI - The Christ Hospital announced Monday that their CEO of nearly 10 years will be leaving.
Susan Croushore will leave on September 3, the hospital announced in a press release. Croushore will serve as a senior adviser to the hospital through the end of the year.
"Susan has overseen a significant period of growth and change in her decade at The Christ Hospital," said Glen Mayfield, chair of the Christ Hospital Board. "Her personal knowledge and her passionate commitment to patients and to the community have been very much appreciated."
Under Croushore, Christ Hospital managed a transition to an independent community hospital and the development of a strategic plan that is positioning it as a regional community health system.
"I have great affection for our leadership, physicians, staff, volunteers, patients and their families," Croushore said in the press release, "and for my colleagues in the health care community here in Cincinnati. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to serve The Christ Hospital family for the past decade, and I look forward to the continued success of this wonderful organization."
Mayfield said the board of directors and executive team will now work diligently to ensure a smooth transition to new leadership, with a national search beginning immediately.
Mike Keating, a board member and past board chair, will serve as president and CEO, as well as a member of the hospital's search committee until the search is completed.
