18 states with the highest hospital CEO turnover

Eighteen percent of hospital CEOs left their roles in 2018, a rate that has been steady for the past five years, according to data from the American College of Healthcare Executives.

While elevated, this rate of turnover is still below 2013, the record year for hospital CEO turnover, at 20 percent. High turnover in healthcare is due to organizational restructuring, CEO movement within health systems and retirement, ACHE President and CEO Deborah Bowen said in a press release.

Based on ACHE data, public data and data from the American Hospital Association, here are the 18 states with the highest turnover rates for hospital CEOs in 2018:

  1. Vermont — 36 percent
  2. Hawaii — 30 percent
  3. Massachusetts — 26 percent
  4. Oklahoma — 26 percent
  5. Wisconsin — 25 percent
  6. Texas — 24 percent
