Bob Shircliff, president and CEO of Jewish Hospital and St. Mary’s Healthcare, announced today that he plans to retire from his post. Shircliff has been in the top spot since 2005, and the 53-year-old leader told the Jewish board he plans to pursue consulting opportunities in the industry.
“I’m tremendously proud of all we’ve accomplished in four years, and am excited about what’s ahead for the organization and myself,” he said in a statement.
The board, chaired by Lou Ann Atlas, has formed a search committee to find a successor.
Shircliff has been working with Jewish since 1985, and was appointed to president and CEO in 2005 after a search process that included 18 interviewees. Shircliff plans to stay on for at least 60 days.
