Centra Health CEO steps down

Lynchburg, Va.-based Centra Health CEO, E.W. Tibbs Jr., resigned, ending his five-year tenure, according to The News & Advance.

Julie Doyle, a member of the organization's board of directors, and Diane Ludwig, a health system spokeswoman, told The News & Advance that Mr. Tibbs was not ousted and nor did his departure have anything to do with "revenues, profits, salaries or the implementation of Cerner," according to the report.

"Once he did a lot of soul searching and made a decision that it was time for him to move on that was the decision made, and even though the board was disappointed in that decision they certainly respect his right to make it," Ms. Doyle said to The News & Advance.

Mr. Tibbs assumed the CEO role at Centra in 2013. During his tenure, the health system's revenues grew from $680 million in 2013 to a projected $1.3 billion this year. Mr. Tibbs was responsible for growing the health system's staff from 6,000 to 8,500, and he oversaw the opening of several medical centers in Virginia. Mr. Tibbs joined Centra in 2006.

Centra appointed Michael Elliott, current senior vice president and COO, its interim CEO. The health system will begin the process of searching for a permanent successor.
