Kettering Health has announced that CEO Fred Manchur will be retiring from his position, effective December 31, 2022. Due to the extent of the national search, and the fact that Manchur plans to take a leave of absence before his retirement, the Kettering Health Board plans to begin the search for a new CEO within the next few weeks.
Manchur’s healthcare career spanned more than four decades, with 21 of those years serving at Kettering Health. In a statement posted on their website, Manchur expressed his gratitude for his time spent with Kettering, along with his plans for the future:
“It has been the greatest blessing of my life to work alongside the incredible medical professionals and staff of Kettering Health for more than 20 years. Their accomplishments and the progress we have made as a hospital system are a great source of pride for me in our service to this community. This felt like the right time to step away for both me and the organization. I look forward to spending more time with family and friends as I begin the next chapter of my life and know that I leave Kettering Health in great hands under the guidance of the board and our capable leadership team.”
This comes in the wake of Kettering Health President Wally Sackett and Chief Administrative Officer Terry Burns stepping down from their positions last month, according to the Cincinnati Business Courier. Unlike Manchur’s role, Kettering Health doesn’t currently have plans to fill these positions.
Becker’s Hospital Review shared a statement from Kettering on the loss of Sackett and Burns:
“The work these leaders have done throughout their tenures at Kettering Health has had a monumental impact on healthcare throughout the Dayton region and western Ohio,” a health system statement reported by the Business Courier reads. “Despite the immense pressures facing healthcare leaders, they led with strength, energy, and a commitment to our mission. We wish them nothing but the best as they transition to the next chapter of their careers.”
