Noblesville-based Riverview Health has hired a new president and CEO to replace longtime top executive Pat Fox.
Seth Warren, CEO of Laconia, New Hampshire-based LRGHealthcare, will replace Fox starting April 25.
Fox, who has served as president and CEO since 2004, announced in December that she planned to retire in May. Fox's career in health care has spanned 45 years, including 30 years in hospital leadership roles and time spent as a nurse. She was vice president for patient care services at Wishard Hospital in Indianapolis before joining Riverview.
Warren spent six months as president and CEO of LRGHealthcare, a system of hospitals and medical practices, before resigning earlier this month. In announcing the resignation, the company's board of trustees said Warren's decision was strictly personal and that he planned to return to Indiana to address pressing needs of his extended family and close friends. Warren said at the time that he had accepted a similar position at a hospital in Indiana, according to The Laconia Daily Sun.
Prior to joining LRGHealthcare in October, Warren worked for HQConsulting, a healthcare consulting firm in Chesterton, Indiana. He also spent 16 years with Franciscan Alliance Inc., a Mishawaka-based Catholic healthcare system with 13 hospitals and several clinics in Indiana and Illinois.
Warren's last day with LRGHealthcare is April 15.
“Seth will bring great vision, leadership and experience to the table,” Fox said in a written statement. “I’m honored to be able to hand the torch over to Seth, knowing that he has successfully helped shape the future of several community-based hospitals across Indiana, Illinois and New Hampshire. We’re privileged that he has chosen to join the Riverview Health team to help us further deliver on our mission to provide the best care to our community.”
Riverview Health is comprised of a 156-bed hospital in Noblesville and 25 primary-care, immediate-care and specialty-care facilities in Hamilton and Tipton counties.
The health network system is in the process of constructing a $34 million, six-story patient care center in Westfield and expanding its Noblesville campus with a $36 million project that will add an outpatient care center and 500-space parking garage.
