Modern Healthcare - - CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE -

Alyson Pit­man Giles plans to step down as pres­i­dent and CEO of Catholic Med­i­cal Cen­ter, Manch­ester, N.H.

Dr. Joe Pepe, the hospi­tal’s CMO, will act as in­terim CEO dur­ing the re­cruit­ment and se­lec­tion of a new leader, ac­cord­ing to a hospi­tal state­ment.

Giles, 58, will stay with Catholic Med­i­cal Cen­ter as a “tran­si­tion con­sul­tant” un­til June 30 and will be in­volved with the se­lec­tion of a new pres­i­dent and CEO, ac­cord­ing to the hospi­tal. “It’s a great time to turn the page and start the next chap­ter,” Giles said in the state­ment. “I look for­ward to help­ing and iden­ti­fy­ing an in­di­vid­ual who will em­brace our mis­sion, Catholic iden­tity and love of our CMC fam­ily.”

Giles be­came the hospi­tal’s CEO in 1998 when a merger with El­liot Hospi­tal, also in Manch­ester, dis­solved. Catholic Med­i­cal Cen­ter later pro­posed an af­fil­i­a­tion with Dart­mouth Hitch­cock Health, Le­banon, N.H., which drew ob­jec­tions from the state at­tor­ney gen­eral in 2010 and was with­drawn by the par­ties last April.

Ear­lier this month, the Amer­i­can Col­lege of Health­care Ex­ec­u­tives an­nounced Giles as one of two 2012 re­cip­i­ents of its Gold Medal Award. She served as the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s board chair-elect, chair­man and im­me­di­ate past chair­man from 2006 to 2009. Giles was named one of Mod­ern Health­care’s Top 25 Women in Health­care in 2007.
