At­lantic Health Sys­tem CEO

Joseph Trun­fio

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

Trun­fio, 67, has led the sys­tem for 15 years. Un­der Trun­fio’s watch, At­lantic has ex­panded to in­clude four acute-care hos­pi­tals. Most re­cently, At­lantic ac­quired Chilton Med­i­cal Cen­ter, Pomp­ton Plains, N.J., and is adding Hack­ettstown (N.J.) Re­gional Med­i­cal Cen­ter.

He also helped cre­ate a re­gional al­liance called Al­lSpire Health Part­ners, a loose coali­tion of seven health sys­tems in New Jersey and East­ern Penn­syl­va­nia fo­cused on pop­u­la­tion health man­age­ment. Eileen Whalen

has been named pres­i­dent and COO of Fletcher Allen Health Care ef­fec­tive in Jan­uary.

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.

Vi­dant Health, Greenville, N.C., has pro­moted Brian Floyd

to pres­i­dent of Vi­dant Med­i­cal Cen­ter.

Floyd, 41, pre­vi­ously served as Vi­dant Med­i­cal Cen­ter’s ex­ec­u­tive VP, han­dling daily op­er­a­tions. He has been with the sys­tem for nine years. He re­places

Steve Lawler,

who will move to a cor­po­rate po­si­tion within Vi­dant Health.

Not-for-profit Vi­dant was most re­cently in the news for its decision to shut down Vi­dant Pungo Hos­pi­tal, a crit­i­cal-ac­cess fa­cil­ity in the small town of Belhaven, N.C. Vi­dant cited the hos­pi­tal’s fi­nan­cial trou­bles and of­fered to build a mul­tispe­cialty clinic in its place.
