The CEO of Geisinger Community Medical Center in Scranton has resigned that post and is moving to a new job as President and CEO of Concord Hospital.
Geisinger Health System issued the following press release:
Robert P. Steigmeyer, Chief Executive Officer at Geisinger-Community Medical Center (G-CMC) in Scranton, announced today he has resigned his position to become President and CEO at Concord Hospital, a regional health system that includes a 295-bed medical center and 250 member medical group in Concord, New Hampshire.
Steigmeyer served as President and CEO of Community Medical Center Healthcare System (CMCHS) from July 2010 until February of 2012 when CMCHS joined Geisinger Health System. Since February of 2012, he has helped lead the transition of the medical center into Geisinger. Prior to coming to Pennsylvania, he served as Senior Vice President of Operations and Finance at Northwest Hospital and Medical Center and was a healthcare management consultant at ECG Management Consultants in Seattle.
“Bob has done a wonderful job leading G-CMC through its transition into Geisinger and building programs and relationships in the Scranton community,” said Geisinger Health System President and CEO Glenn D. Steele Jr., M.D., PhD. “We thank Bob for his service and wish him well in his new career endeavor.”
“When I first came to Scranton, the local hospital landscape was in flux,” said Steigmeyer. “Becoming part of Geisinger has enabled us to grow programs and has significantly strengthened our ability to fulfill our patient and community service mission. I remain extremely proud of the efforts of G-CMC’s talented staff and am grateful for the support of this remarkable community. I thank Geisinger for my experience here and look forward to assuming my next leadership position in New England.”
Geisinger and Concord Hospital share many similarities, Steigmeyer believes.
“Both are progressive, integrated delivery systems focused on doing what is best for patients,” he said. “I am pleased to join another organization that is passionate about continual quality improvement and overall effectiveness.”
“Bob will bring valuable experience and dedicated knowledge to his new leadership role, together with a commitment to the charitable mission of our organization,” said Muriel Schadee, Concord Hospital board and search committee chair.
Steigmeyer begins his new duties in January.
