Covenant Health CEO to retire; Interim CFO to succeed

David R. Lincoln, president and CEO of Tewksbury, Mass.-based Covenant Health, will retire April 26.

Mr. Lincoln has served at the helm of the health system since its founding in 1986. During his time as president and CEO, Covenant Health grew to include three hospitals and 10 post-acute care facilities as well as 6,500-plus employees.

"Over the past 35 years, health care has changed dramatically, and David has successfully led Covenant Health through more than one transformation," said Louise Trottier, chairperson of the organization's board of directors. "This is David's legacy and we are deeply grateful to him, and to his family, for all he has accomplished."

Stephen J. Grubbs will succeed Mr. Lincoln as Covenant Health's president and CEO. He has worked at the health system since September 2018, when he joined as interim CFO. He has prior experience serving as president and CEO of Bay Medical Center Sacred Heart Health Systems in Panama City, Fla., and CEO of Paris (Texas) Regional Medical Center.

Mr. Grubbs holds an MBA from Bethel University in McKenzie, Tenn. He will assume his new role April 27.
