Saint Peter's Healthcare CEO Ronald Rak departs

New Brunswick, N.J.-based Saint Peter's Healthcare CEO Ronald Rak is leaving his post. The health system named Leslie Hirsch to take over as CEO on an interim basis.

The hospital has not indicated a reason for Mr. Rak's departure.

"On behalf of the Board of Governors and the Bishop of Metuchen, I want to thank Ron for his service to Saint Peters, the Catholic mission and his role in creating our system. Ron has asked that I share his appreciation of the dedicated staff who worked with him these past nine years," said Vincent J. Dicks, chairman of the Saint Peter's Healthcare System's board of governors, in a hospital statement. "We wish Ron the best of luck in his future and please join me and the Board in supporting Les as he takes on this additional responsibility."

Mr. Hirsch is currently president of the health system, a role he will continue in addition to his new interim CEO position. He is the immediate past president of the New Jersey Hospital Association and has previously served as CEO of Denville, N.J.-based Saint Clare's Health System, according to a NJ Biz report.
