Randolph Health CEO to depart in October

Asheboro, N.C.-based Randolph Health CEO Steven E. Eblin is resigning, effective Oct. 2. Angela Orth, COO of Randolph Health, will succeed him.

Mr. Eblin, who became CEO in March 2012, approached the board a few months ago suggesting the leadership transition himself.

"Steve approached a few board members and [Ms. Orth] in February with his opinion that the organization has evolved, that it's time for a different type of leader and that the leader should be Angie," said Mac Pugh, chairman of Randolph Health's board of directors, in a statement. "As we now begin talks with potential new integration partners and make necessary changes to our business model, [Mr. Eblin] has suggested that now is the time for a leadership transition."

Mr. Pugh also noted Randolph Health is "now widely recognized by multiple organizations for our high quality and low cost." This is "largely due to the culture change [Mr. Eblin] and his leadership team have created," he said.

Mr. Eblin has worked at Randolph Health for 25 years, initially joining as vice president of corporate planning and development.

Ms. Orth, who joined the organization as COO in 2013, will take over CEO duties July 1. Mr. Eblin will remain at Randolph Health until Oct. 2, serving as a transition advisor.
