Joe Woodin, former CEO of South Peninsula Hospital in Homer, Alaska, resigned April 16, according to a Homer News report.

In a media release obtained by the News, Mr. Woodin said that he is leaving due to "unanticipated circumstances."

He became CEO of the hospital in March 2018.

"[Mr. Woodin] made great progress on numerous priorities during a critical transition time for the organization, and we thank him for his service," said David Groesbeck, president of the hospital's board of directors, in the press release, according to the News.

Previously, Mr. Woodin served as president and CEO at Oak Bluffs, Mass.-based Martha's Vineyard Hospital, a critical access facility. He was fired from the facility in June 2017.
