UCHealth chiefs submit resignations [Greeley Tribune, Colo.]
(Greeley Tribune (CO) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Aug. 23--University of Colorado Health's president and CEO will step down officially on Jan. 31, according to a new release.
President Rulon Stacey, who moved into the role when UCHealth merged with Poudre Valley Health Systems, and CEO Bruce Schroffel, both submitted their resignations to Dick Monfort, chairman for the UCHealth Board of Directors.
"Bruce and Rulon have shown incredible leadership and vision as they have literally built the UCHealth system from the very beginning," said Monfort in the release. "Their direction has redefined high quality health care, and patients throughout the Rocky Mountain region and across the nation have benefitted from what they and their teams have created. The Board and I are incredibly thankful for their service, and we will soon begin the difficult task of finding a new president and CEO to lead UCHealth."
Dr. Bill Neff, who serves as UCHealth's chief medical officer, will serve as interim president and CEO beginning Oct. 1, while the board conducts a national search for one leader to fulfill both roles of CEO and president.
In 2010, Schroffel, then president and CEO of University of Colorado Hospital, and Stacey, then president and CEO of Poudre Valley Health System, began talking about combining into a new organization.
Schroffel is retiring and Stacey plans to continue his career in health care.
