R. Ti­mothy Stack, pres­i­dent and CEO of Pied­mont Health­care, At­lanta, died July 30 at the age of 60. Stack had been on med­i­cal leave since June. Greg Hurst, pres­i­dent of fi­nance and de­vel­op­ment, will continue to over­see the CEO re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. Pied­mont cred­ited Stack, who had served in the CEO role since De­cem­ber 2001, with build­ing the sys­tem from two hos­pi­tals and eight physi­cian prac­tices to its cur­rent $1.6 bil­lion net­work of five hos­pi­tals and 50 pri­mary-care and spe­cialty prac­tices. Dur­ing his ten­ure, Stack over­saw a num­ber of ac­qui­si­tions, such as New­nan (Ga.) Hospi­tal in 2007 and Moun­tain­side Med­i­cal Cen­ter, Jasper, Ga., in 2004. Be­fore join­ing Pied­mont, Stack was pres­i­dent and CEO of Borgess Health Al­liance and Borgess Med­i­cal Cen­ter, Kala­ma­zoo, Mich. He was also pres­i­dent and CEO of South Side Health­care Sys­tem, and se­nior VP and COO of Cen­tral Med­i­cal Cen­ter and Hospi­tal, both in Pitts­burgh. Stack also left the sys­tem in 2003 for a brief stint at the helm of MedQuist, a health­care tech­nol­ogy firm in Marl­ton, N.J. Pied­mont did not dis­close the cause of death.
