announced plans to retire but will stay on until the Morristown, N.J.-based organization finds his successor in the coming months.

Whalen, 59, will join Burlington, Vt.based Fletcher Allen from Harborview Medical Center, an academic healthcare facility in Seattle that is part of University of Washington Medicine. Whalen, a nurse by background, has more than 35 years of healthcare experience and most recently served as Harborview’s executive director. Dr. John Brumsted
has carried dual roles as president and CEO of Fletcher Allen Health Care, Vermont’s only academic medical center, and Fletcher Allen Partners, the parent multihospital network. He now will serve exclusively as CEO of Fletcher Allen Partners. Whalen will run day-to-day operations of Fletcher Allen Health Care.
