Jonathan Nalli, 39, has been CEO since 2007 of Porter Health System, an affiliate of Tennessee-based Community Health Systems Inc. Based in Valparaiso, Porter operates two hospitals, six outpatient centers and numerous physician practices.

Nalli will become CEO of St. Vincent on Feb. 1, the hospital system announced Tuesday. The Indianapolis-based Catholic hospital system operates 22 hospitals around Indiana, employing about 16,500 people. It reported revenue of $2.8 billion in its most recent fiscal year.

St. Vincent is an affiliate of St. Louis-based Ascension Health, the nation’s largest Catholic hospital system.

He will replace Ian Worden, who has served as interim CEO since Vince Caponi stepped aside in July. Caponi remains executive chairman of the board for St. Vincent Health.
 
“As a proven healthcare executive with vast experience in growth management strategies, improvement plans and demonstrable results in achieving business objectives, we look forward to Jonathan leading the transformation of our business and building on the successes of our ministry,” said Caponi, in a prepared statement.
 
Before leading Porter Health, Nalli was chief operating officer of Chestnut Hill Health System in Philadelphia for two years. In addition, he served as chief operating officer of Pottstown Memorial Medical Center in Pottstown, Pa.
 
Nalli holds an MBA from Drexel University in Philadelphia, and his bachelor's of health sciences from the University of Kentucky.

  • WHAT!!!
    It's always sad to see comments based on emotion rather than FACTS. Can you possibly imagine employing 16,000+ people with all levels of professional/service responsibilities without 'revenue' (monies received)? What about the equipment, maintenance, supplies, food, utilities & emergency generators (to name only a few) to sustain care and life benefits for patients? What about an Emergency Department that accepts ALL in need regardless of insurance or ability to pay (Obama's plan couldn't begin to be better than the Church!). Hope you can now understand the difference between revenue and profit. Do NOT allow the propaganda of populous thinking that all 'big business' is bad rule your emotions - that's what it preys on! Without sensible 'business' leaders there would be no employment, benefits, services, or prosperity to share through your tax benefits. Thank God we can still think for ourselves (though barely) and express our views - hopefully, it will encourage 'more though' and 'less follow' among the masses...
  • Shameful
    Just a few months ago this hospital laid off nearly 900 people - that's downsizing. Now they're talking about growth again. You can't have both growth and lose people. It just doesn't work that way. How much is this new CEO going to make??? They've got money for his salary but couldn't hang onto the people that were let go!!!
  • Non-profit hospital
    Someone please show me a true non-profit hospital. I don't understand why the IRS allows this to go on.
  • St. Dollar Sign
    “As a proven healthcare executive with vast experience in growth management strategies, improvement plans and demonstrable results in achieving business objectives..." ...is exactly what I do NOT want in my non-profit hospital!!! Getting further and further away from any faith-based health care provider by wanting to grow that $2.8 billion. Grrrrr

    1. Uh, sorry Johnnie, but you are incorrect. Despite the assertions by yourself and various defenders and captains, sports attendance is NOT off significantly at most sporting events in the US. Variances in attendance has been in the range of single digits, both + & - for years now. MLB has had most of its best overall attendance nubers in the last decade, and that trend has been consistent for most major sporting events. The number one issue cited by most fans when asked about attendance is the overall cost of attending. The presence of HD and big screen televisions in home doesn't even register, as a factor for not attending an event. VALUE in the product is the key, and apparently is something lacking in the current ICS. What other explanation is there when with what is routinely touted as the "best" racing on the planet, fans are staying away in DROVES. A "close" title battle into the last event at Fontana, with the "cars and stars" of the ICS, and who showed up? MAYBE 8K. Sorry, but HD TV isn't to blame for that kind of fan apathy.

    3. If she was worth the $ the public outcry over direct tv dropping them would have kept them on their dishes as we have seen with other companies. I too quit watching channel 13 after she showed up since I left channel 8 because of her all show rather than production results. When Randy on 8 corrected her she had a big head and incorrectly challenged his correction for pronunciation of a city. Other antics while she matures was too much for me with her very inaccurate forecasts. All the forecasters were predicting rain until Thursday except Chris. They predicted sunny on Thursday but instead of rain until Thursday upon which the sun would finally make it out in full glory Chris was right on the money just as I too predicted looking at the radar on weather.gov. One thing I love about Angela is the fear you can see in her every time it thunders in the winter. It far exceeds the entertainment value of her body language (high heel noise drags, depression, etc) when her forecasts are so incorrect. Her hair stands on end, you have to see it!!!
