President-chief executive officer David Lundquist recently resigned his position with Rome Memorial Hospital.
Lundquist cited the need to spend more time with his family in Oklahoma and Arkansas as a reason for his resignation.
“My retirement comes at a time when the hospital is positioned for growth with the addition of several new specialists,” said Lundquist, who has served as hospital CEO since March 2016.
At an upcoming meeting, the board will initiate the process for the search and hiring of the next president and CEO. In the meantime, Mark Murphy, chief strategy officer at St. Joseph’s Health, has been named interim president and CEO while that search is undertaken. RMH has been an affiliate of St. Joseph’s Health since March of 2017.
