Children’s Hospital Central California Board of Trustees announced that the board and Dr. Gordon Alexander, president and chief executive officer, have mutually agreed to end their association effective November 15, 2011.
“We appreciate Dr. Alexander’s contributions and his dedication to Children’s Hospital and our community,” said Jeff Mayer, chairman, board of trustees, Children’s Hospital Central California.
The board has already initiated a national search for a successor and will be aided in this effort by a national search firm and a board-appointed search committee. Interim executive leadership for the hospital will be provided by Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Todd Suntrapak and Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Michele Waldron. “Todd and Michele are veterans of Children’s Hospital and we are confident in their ability to lead through this transition period,” Mayer said.
