Hospital CEO turnover rate by state

Nationally, 16 percent of hospital CEOs left their roles in 2020, an annual turnover rate that is the lowest calculated since 2011, according to a report from the American College of Healthcare Executives, an international professional society.

While this rate is decreased compared to 17 percent in 2019 and 18 percent in 2018, recent data suggests turnover remains relatively stable, American College of Healthcare Executives President and CEO Deborah Bowen said in a news release. She said turnover has been driven by leaders moving to other roles or departing organizations, among other factors.

Based on American College of Healthcare Executives data, data from the American Hospital Association, and public sources, here is how the 50 states plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico rank on annual hospital CEO turnover, in descending order.
