New Jersey health system CEO to retire

Kevin Slavin, president and CEO of Paterson, N.J.-based St. Joseph's Health, will retire at the end of 2023 after nine years in the role.

Mr. Slavin assumed the role of president and CEO of the three-hospital system in 2015. Before then, he served as president and CEO of East Orange (N.J.) General Hospital for 10 years, with prior time spent as executive vice president and COO of St. Joseph's Health.

Mr. Slavin also served as chairperson of the board for the New Jersey Hospital Association during 2020 at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

"Kevin helped steer us through one of the most important periods for health care in our state's history, and we will forever be grateful for his leadership," Cathy Bennett, president and CEO of the New Jersey Hospital Association, said in a news release shared with Becker's.  

The St. Joseph's Health board convened a search committee to oversee a national search for the leader to succeed Mr. Slavin.
