Cleveland Clinic Akron General CEO retires

Thomas "Tim" Stover, MD, president and CEO of Cleveland Clinic Akron (Ohio) General, has retired, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.


Dr. Stover's retirement "wasn't unexpected," hospital spokeswoman Stephanie York told the Akron Beacon Journal. "I just think it was a little sooner than expected."


Dr. Stover had served as president and CEO of Akron (Ohio) General Health System, now Cleveland Clinic Akron General, since February 2012. Cleveland Clinic took over full ownership of Akron General Health System in November 2015.  

Ms. York told the Akron Beacon Journal that Dr. Stover, who announced his immediate retirement Thursday, wanted to get the hospital through integration with the Cleveland Clinic, but once he did, he planned to retire to spend more time with his grandchildren. Dr. Stover's current contract runs through 2017, according to the report.

Janice Murphy, COO of Cleveland Clinic Regional Operations, will step in as temporary president while a search is conducted for Dr. Stover's replacement.
