Pen Bay Healthcare CEO resigns
Rockport — Pen Bay Healthcare’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Wade Johnson, has announced his personal decision to resign his post at Pen Bay Healthcare.
Johnson will be leaving in mid-April for an opportunity in Idaho. Johnson began the job in February 2012 after moving to the area from Idaho.
“On behalf of the Pen Bay Healthcare Board of Trustees, I would like to express our gratitude to Wade for his thoughtful leadership and dedication to Pen Bay and the Midcoast community over these past few years,” said Everett Spear III, Pen Bay Healthcare Board of Trustees chairman. “Pen Bay Healthcare is stronger due to Wade’s and the senior executive team’s leadership. We wish him the best of success as he pursues his career goals,” he adds.
During his tenure, Johnson has lead the organization’s comprehensive strategic planning process; developed a series of quality improvement initiatives that have proven successful; and provided oversight to a set of efforts aimed at reducing the cost of healthcare delivery in the Midcoast.
The Pen Bay Healthcare Board of Trustees, medical staff and executive team will continue to collaborate to accomplish the goals outlined in the strategic plan and to lead Pen Bay forward during this time of transition.
A search committee comprised of community board members and medical staff leadership will be formed to conduct a national search for Pen Bay Healthcare’s next president and chief executive officer.
“Wade has developed a highly competent executive leadership team, and the board will work with this team and the leaders of the medical staff to develop appropriate transition plans to ensure leadership continuity and interim management during the next few weeks,” Spear added.
