Former Carolinas HealthCare executive dies following cancer battle

Russ Guerin, a former executive at Charlotte, N.C.-based Carolinas HealthCare System, died Aug. 6 after an 11-year battle with cancer, according to a Charlotte Business Journal report.

Mr. Guerin was part of Carolinas HealthCare's executive team for nearly 27 years, starting in 1987 as vice president for financial services. He retired from his most recent role as executive vice president of business development and planning in June 2013.

Mr. Guerin played an important role in helping build Carolinas HealthCare's footprint, according to the report. During his tenure, the health system grew from one hospital — Charlotte Memorial Hospital — to 39 facilities and 900 care locations.

In the report, Michael Tarwater, president and CEO of Carolinas HealthCare, described Mr. Guerin as "a good man and great friend with a courageous heart."
