Largest employer without president, CEO


Community Mercy Health Partners — the largest employer in Clark County — is without a president and chief executive officer after Mark Wiener’s resignation Monday.

Wiener, who has been president and CEO of CMHP since 2008, submitted his resignation Nov. 27, but officially completed his last day Monday .

CMHP has chosen not to appoint an interim leader, but will instead have a leadership team guide its 2,700 employees, two hospitals, and various medical and nursing facilities in the region.

“The senior leadership team will guide the organization with support from divisional leadership,” said Dave Lamb, CMHP spokesman. “There are no plans to designate new leadership while search efforts are underway for a permanent replacement.”

Lamb said the senior leadership team consists of five or six employees, such as the chief operating officer and chief of nursing.

“There’s always a leader on call, whether there is a CEO or not,” Lamb said.

No one on the leadership team would be able to talk about the situation, Lamb said, or about the search for a new CEO.

“There’s not a specific time table on the search or a determination on the best approach to fill the position,” Lamb said.

Wiener resigned from the hospital after six years with CMHP, including serving as COO before becoming president and CEO in 2008.

While Wiener lead the medical centers, Community Mercy Health Partners built a new 475,000-square-foot $235 million Springfield Regional Medical Center campus downtown near Buck Creek.
