Woman's Hospital chief strategy officer departs after position is eliminated

Baton Rouge, La.-based Woman's Hospital has eliminated the chief strategy officer position, ousting Stan Shelton, according to a Greater Baton Rouge Business Report.

The move is part of restructuring efforts that aim to streamline leadership of the organization, Robert Burgess, interim CEO of the hospital, told the Business Report.

Mr. Shelton worked at Woman's Hospital for 30 years, helping oversee several key initiatives, including the relocation of the hospital campus in 2012.

The responsibilities that fell to Mr. Shelton as chief strategy officer have been absorbed by other leaders: the hospital CEO, COO and the vice president leadership group, Mr. Burgess told Business Report.

Woman's Hospital has a number of leadership vacancies, including permanent CEO. Mr. Burgess took over as interim CEO after Teri Fontenot's retirement in March. The hospital also is looking for a CFO and chief philanthropy officer.
