Missouri-based St. Joseph Medical Center CEO Robert Erickson departs after 18 months

Kansas City, Mo.-based St. Joseph Medical Center CEO Robert Erickson stepped down from his role, after a little more than a year, according to a Kansas City Business Journal report.

Mr. Erickson joined the medical center as CEO in February 2015, just after Ontario, Calif.-based Prime Healthcare Services purchased the facility from St. Louis-based Ascension. Prior to joining St. Joseph, Mr. Erickson was CEO of St. Francis Health in Topeka, Kan. Since then, there have been a number of changes at St. Joseph, including the decision to close its birthing center on Oct. 31. The hospital has not responded to a request for comment on Mr. Erickson's departure from the Kansas City Business Journal.

Jodi Fincher, previously the hospital's SNO, is now serving as interim CEO.
