St. Mary Medical Center CEO to step down: 4 things to know

Gregory T. Wozniak, president and CEO of St. Mary Medical Center in Langhorne, Pa., part of Livonia, Mich.-based Trinity Health, will step down in October after 16 years at the helm, according to a Bucks County Courier Times report.

Here are four things to know about Mr. Wozniak and his departure.

1. Mr. Wozniak said now is the best possible time for him to leave, as the medical center is "well prepared for the future of healthcare in the United States" and "in excellent financial position," according to a statement.

2. In an interview with the Bucks County Courier Times late Tuesday afternoon, Mr. Wozniak said he will not consider what to pursue next until after he leaves his current position. However, he told the newspaper he will focus on pursuing opportunities in healthcare leadership, teaching, consulting and volunteering.

3. Mr. Wozniak became the fourth CEO of St. Mary Medical Center in 1999, succeeding the late Sister Clare Carty, according to the report.

4. Under Mr. Wozniak's leadership, the medical operation has grown to provide a variety of services aside from hospital care, including LIFE St. Mary, a healthcare choice for older people living in Bucks County; St. Mary Physicians Group; St. Mary Rehabilitation Hospital; and the Quality Health Alliance accountable care organization. St. Mary Medical Center also has received certifications for stroke, joint replacement, heart failure and sleep disorders. Most recently, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and St. Mary Medical Center announced a new community partnership. Under the agreement, CHOP neonatologists and pediatricians will provide 24/7 physician coverage for the St. Mary Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and the Bristol-Myers Squibb Pediatric Emergency Care Center.
