(LACONIA) – The LRGHealthcare Board of Trustees (Board) is proud to announce today they have selected Seth C. R. Warren as LRGHealthcare’s next President and Chief Executive Officer.
Seth brings nearly 25 years of experience in community health systems and hospitals to LRGHealthcare. He most recently served as president of HQ Consulting in Chesterton, IN providing healthcare consulting services. Prior to that, he spent 16 years with Franciscan Alliance, a 13 hospital Catholic Healthcare System with 18,000 employees, 700 employed physicians, and numerous free-standing facilities, having served in multiple administrative roles including regional CEO.
Seth has been recognized for his strengths in creating a vision and moving organizations forward based on uncompromised quality and customer service. His achievements earned him recognition in BusINess Magazine’s 2006 20 Under 40 as one of the top 20 business people under the age of 40 in Northwest Indiana and he was featured in a winter, 2010 issue of the same magazine for his successful turnaround of Franciscan St. James Health.
Seth is also passionate about serving his community. He’s heavily involved in his current home of Chesterton, IN (he’s a Moorestown, NJ native) and looks forward to getting involved in the Lakes and Three Rivers communities once he and his family have settled.
“On behalf of the Board of Trustees, we are eager to welcome Seth to LRGHealthcare and Central NH,” states Board Chairman, Scott Clarenbach. “Seth was the chosen candidate for his mix of previous experience, his honest, hard working style, inclusiveness, and moral compass which will all be a great fit for our organization.”
Over the last year, LRGHealthcare has been led by Interim President & CEO, Charles (Chuck) Van Sluyter who helped the organization continue to advance while it conducted its search for a new, permanent President and CEO. The decision to select Seth was made after a careful nationwide search and meticulous review of candidates by a search committee made up of LRGHealthcare providers, community stakeholders, and the LRGHealthcare Board.
The Board also spent the last year putting together a three year strategic plan for LRGHealthcare with which Seth will lead them into the future. As Chuck moves on, and Seth moves in, LRGHealthcare is confident the change in leadership will be a seamless transition into what’s next for the organization.
Clarenbach continued, “Chuck was a great steward to reshape our health system by making the necessary internal and external changes to our organization and we’re excited for Seth to continue this progress as well as to seek out additional opportunities in our always changing health care environment.”
Seth will begin his tenure as LRGHealthcare’s President and CEO October 5. Please join LRGHealthcare in welcoming Seth C. R Warren, his wife Maureen, and their three sons to LRGHealthcare and the Lakes and Three Rivers communities.
