Kirk Wil­son re­signed as pres­i­dent and CEO of St. Joseph’s Hos­pi­tal, At­lanta. Wil­son, 58, who has held the post since 2006, will leave the or­ga­ni­za­tion by year-end, ac­cord­ing to Amanda Ros­seter, a hos­pi­tal spokes­woman. Paul

John­son, St. Joseph’s COO, was ap­pointed in­terim CEO, she said. St. Joseph’s has shelved un­suc­cess­ful part­ner­ship talks twice this year—first with Pied­mont Health­Care in Au­gust and then with Emory Health­care in Oc­to­ber. But Ros­seter said those failed joint ven­tures were not the mo­ti­va­tion for Wil­son’s de­par­ture. “He ba­si­cally achieved ev­ery­thing he was brought in to do,” she said, cit­ing the 2009 open­ing of St. Joseph’s Trans­la­tional Re­search In­sti­tute, and the devel­op­ment of St. Joseph’s Med­i­cal Group. “He’s been very suc­cess­ful dur­ing his ten­ure here,” she said. Wil­son did not an­nounce any plans for a fu­ture po­si­tion. St. Joseph’s has not yet started the search process, and Ros­seter did not pro­vide a pro­jected time­frame for find­ing Wil­son’s suc­ces­sor. …

Brian Jep­son was named pres­i­dent of Rochester (N.Y.) Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal, a new po­si­tion. Jep­son, 40, pre­vi­ously worked as ex­ec­u­tive VP and COO of Metro Health, Grand Rapids, Mich. He started at the job Oct. 1, ac­cord­ing to a spokesman. The hir­ing is de­signed to free up Mark Cle­ment, pres­i­dent and CEO of Rochester Gen­eral Health Sys­tem, for “strate­gic is­sues and op­por­tu­ni­ties,” ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease.
