Manchur was named CEO at Kettering in 2010 and led the transition of rebranding Kettering Health Network to Kettering Health in 2021. He oversaw 14 medical centers throughout the Dayton region, including Dayton, Beavercreek, Moraine, Middletown, Hamilton, Xenia, Huber Heights, Miamisburg, Troy, Piqua, Springfield, and more.
He also oversaw more than 120 outpatient centers and numerous joint ventures. The Kettering Physician Network also includes more than 700 board-certified providers, and Kettering College, a division of Kettering Health Main Campus, is a fully accredited college that specializes in health science education.
Manchur previously served as president of Kettering Health Main Campus and Kettering Health Miamisburg, as well as Kettering Health executive vice president and president, respectively. Manchur also held leadership positions at three other Seventh-day Adventist hospitals in the Los Angeles area.
Richard Manchur, Fred Manchur’s son, is currently the president of Kettering Health Dayton and also oversees Kettering Health Huber and Kettering Health Preble.
Two other top Kettering Health executives left the network in October, including Kettering Health President Wally Sackett and Chief Administrative Officer Terry Burns.
The Kettering family opened their first hospital on the family estate in 1964. In 1999, Kettering Medical Center Network was formed by adding Grandview and Southview to its existing holdings, Kettering and Sycamore. Since then, what became Kettering Health Network acquired Greene Memorial in 2008, acquired Fort Hamilton in 2010, built Soin in 2012, and constructed multiple new facilities since then.
Kettering Health is the second of the area’s largest health networks to replace its CEO in the past year. Michael Riordan became Premier Health’s president and CEO in January, taking over for the previous leader, Mary Boosalis.
