The CEO and CFO of Bayfront Health St. Petersburg in Florida resigned Feb. 13, a spokesperson with the system confirmed to the Tampa Bay Times.

A spokesperson confirmed the resignations of CEO John McLain, effective Feb. 28, and CFO Pam Modisett in a statement to the publication.

Mr. McLain was named CEO of the hospital in July 2017, while Ms. Modisett has served as CFO of the facility for the past two years, according to the report.

The spokesperson said Joe Mullany will act as interim CEO of the hospital. He joined the six-hospital system roughly one year ago. Mr. Mullany previously served a four-year tenure as president and CEO of Detroit Medical Center.

The leadership changes come amid a slew of changes across the health system. During the last six months, Bayfront Health St. Petersburg laid off 19 employees, with the majority of those positions in administrative or clerical services, the spokesperson confirmed to the publication.

Bayfront Health St. Petersburg is part of Franklin, Tenn.-based Community Health Systems. CHS purchased the Bayfront Health system in 2013.
