Dr. Putnam will resign Aug. 31 after serving as hospital CEO since 2009, according to a July 30 news release. 

"I have had the privilege to serve this organization and community for more than 12 years, including the most challenging, dynamic year the healthcare industry has ever experienced," he said in the release. "It has been a sincere pleasure to work with such an incredible team of caregivers, providers and leaders who demonstrate on a daily basis their commitment to quality patient care and service excellence."
