Sen­sor ex­its Ale­gent in Omaha fol­low­ing no-con­fi­dence votes

Modern Healthcare - - Late News -

Ale­gent Health Pres­i­dent and CEO Wayne Sen­sor ten­dered his im­me­di­ate res­ig­na­tion from the Omaha, Neb., sys­tem, just weeks af­ter the med­i­cal staff at two of Ale­gent’s nine hos­pi­tals cast votes of no con­fi­dence in his lead­er­ship. The sys­tem did not an­nounce a spe­cific rea­son for Sen­sor’s de­par­ture. “Our board, along with physi­cians and em­ploy­ees wish to thank Wayne for his vi­sion, com­mit­ment and ded­i­ca­tion to Ale­gent Health and to our com­mu­nity,” Ale­gent Board Chair­woman Les­lie Andersen said in a state­ment. Richard Hachten II, who was pres­i­dent of Ale­gent un­til his re­tire­ment in April, was ap­pointed in­terim CEO. Sen­sor has been guid­ing the sys­tem through a re­align­ment, with plans to cut at least 300 jobs. In Septem­ber, the med­i­cal staffs at 296-bed Ale­gent Health Im­manuel Med­i­cal Cen­ter and 304bed Ale­gent Health Ber­gan Mercy Med­i­cal Cen­ters, both in Omaha, cast votes of no con­fi­dence in his lead­er­ship. Ale­gent is run through a joint op­er­at­ing agree­ment be­tween Catholic Health Ini­tia­tives, Den­ver, and Im­manuel Health Sys­tems, Omaha.
