A spokesperson for Decatur, Ga.-based DeKalb Medical Center confirmed the resignations of the medical center's CFO and COO, according to The Atlanta Journal Constitution.

CFO John Katsianis resigned for personal reasons in May and, after serving out his contractually required notice period, left Dekalb Medical Center in August. The board accepted COO Dane Henry's resignation Nov. 11, effective immediately, according to the article. 

Last week, former President and CEO of DeKalb Medical John Shelton resigned from his position. The medical center also divulged plans to lay off about 60 people and eliminate 80 vacant positions.

Robin Nichols will preside as interim CFO until officials find a permanent replacement. Jim Forstner, will serve as the medical center's new COO. Mr. Forstner previously served as the medical center's senior vice president for strategy, one of the positions eliminated last week, according to Ms. Iverson.
