Suspended South Shore Health CEO resigns

Gene Green, MD, the suspended president and CEO of South Shore Health in South Weymouth, Mass., will not be returning to the role, The Patriot Ledger reported.

Dr. Green was placed on administrative leave in August, along with Wayne Stockbridge, chief administrative and human resources officer. They were suspended during a review of operational and administrative issues at the organization, although officials have not specified those issues.

Dr. Green told South Shore Health Oct. 4 that he will be leaving the organization.

"We thank Dr. Green for his service and wish him well," the health system said in a statement obtained by The Patriot Ledger.

He became president and CEO of South Shore Health in 2016.

"South Shore Health System is an outstanding institution," a statement from Dr. Green said.. "I am proud and honored to have had the opportunity to lead the system over the past four years, during which it has become a leading community-based healthcare provider and is well-positioned for future growth."

Rose Di Pietro, RN, a former South Shore Health executive, has been serving as interim CEO since August. She will continue to lead the health system until a permanent replacement is named.

Health system officials did not comment on whether Mr. Stockbridge is still on leave.
