COO, CFO to leave Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center

Bobbi Carbone, MD, president and COO of Winston-Salem, N.C.-based Wake Forest Baptist Health, and Mike Rutherford, CFO of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, are departing from the medical center after serving in their respective roles for just over one year, according to Triad Business Journal.

Dr. Carbone resigned "to pursue other opportunities." Mike Rutherford, who joined Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center last year from Ohio State University's Wexner Medical Center in Columbus, had originally agreed to serve as CFO on an interim basis for one year, though the medical center didn't publicly note this detail at the time of his appointment March 13, 2014, according to the report.

Following Dr. Carbone's departure, the medical center will drop the president and COO position for Wake Forest Health, as the role had been created for her when she joined the system. Kevin High, MD, has been promoted to executive vice president of health system affairs and will take over Dr. Carbone's duties.

Mr. Rutherford will be replaced by Chad Eckes, who has served as executive vice president and CIO since March 2014.

Deetee Emon, who joined Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center last spring as chief clinical information officer, will replaces Mr. Eckes as vice president and CIO.
