Fisher-Titus CEO to step down

Matthew Gross, CEO of Norwalk, Ohio-based Fisher-Titus Health system, is retiring March 1.

Mr. Gross, who has 30 years of experience in leadership at Fortune 500 companies, assumed the top post at the organization in December 2017 after former CEO Lorna Stayer retired. He previously served as chairman of the Fisher-Titus board.

Brent W. Burkey, MD, president of Norwalk-based Fisher-Titus Medical Center since March 2018, will take over as president and CEO of Fisher-Titus Health. He previously served in several leadership positions at Cleveland Clinic.

"I leave my duties in the very capable hands of Dr. Burkey who will now serve in the combined role of president/CEO for our health system," said Mr. Gross. "Brent has spent the past 11 months working with our clinical and medical staff while at the same time developing a keen understanding of our community's healthcare needs and helping to establish our strategic direction for the future."
