Envision Healthcare realigns senior leadership structure, announces $250M stock repurchase

Nashville, Tenn.-based Envision Healthcare has authorized a $250 million share repurchase program and realigned its senior leadership structure by appointing a new COO, CFO and president of physician services.

As a result of the realignment, Karey Witty, former CEO of Brentwood, Tenn.-based Corizon Health will serve as Envision's executive vice president and COO; Kevin Eastridge, currently Envision's chief accounting officer, will replace Claire Culmi as CFO; and Brian Jackson, the COO for Envision's Physician Services Group, will succeed Robert Coward as president of physician services. These changes will be effective Oct. 2.

Envision, which combined with Nashville, Tenn.-based AmSurg Corp. in 2016, believes the changes will help strengthen its strategy.

"In the 10 months since we completed our transformational combination, the board and management team of Envision have been focused on reshaping the business to advance our physician-centric strategy," said Christopher A. Holden, president and CEO of Envision Healthcare. "The execution of this strategy will be enhanced by the new organization structure and executive leadership."

In addition to new leaders, Envision Healthcare's board of directors authorized a program to repurchase $250 million of its common stock.
