Pat Fox, president and CEO of Riverview Health since 2004, plans to retire in May, the Noblesville-based health care network announced Monday.
Riverview said a search for Fox’s successor has already started and a six-person selection committee has been formed.
“Pat Fox has had a tremendous impact on Riverview Health, courageously leading us through many transitions in health care over the last two decades,” Greg Murray, Riverview Health board of trustees chairman, said in a written statement. "We’re thankful for her countless contributions to our organization and we’re proud of her distinguished tenure as president and CEO.”
Fox, a former nurse, is retiring after a 45-year career in health care, including 30 years in hospital leadership roles. She was vice president for patient care services at Wishard Hospital in Indianapolis before joining Riverview
“The highlight of my career has been serving the people of Hamilton County and working alongside so many talented health care professionals,” Fox said in a written statement. “Together, we have transformed health care in Indiana. The time has now come for me to pass the torch to the next generation of leaders and enjoy watching this organization continue to flourish.”
Riverview Health is comprised of a 156-bed hospital in Noblesville and 25 primary, immediate-care and specialty-care facilities in Hamilton and Tipton counties.
The system is nearing the completion of two medical office buildings in Westfield and Noblesville and is renovating the inpatient rehabilitation unit at the hospital.
