Kent Hospital chief executive will retire in October
WARWICK -- Mark E. Crevier, the Kent Hospital president and chief executive, announced today that he intends to retire Oct. 15.
Crevier was named CEO of the 359-bed community hospital in Warwick in April 2006. He succeeded Dr. Robert Baute.
“It has been a great pleasure to be involved with these exceptional organizations for some 23 years and most recently here at Kent,” Crevier, 57, said in a news release. “I have always planned to retire between 55 and 60 and when I accepted the position as the President & CEO at Kent, I did so with a three-year timeframe in mind."
Crevier added that "we have made significant progress in the past couple of years, and I am confident that the success of this hospital will continue.”
Crevier had previously served in leadership positions with Women & Infants Hospital and the Care New England Health System, which is parent of Kent and Women & Infants hospitals.
Kent Hospital Board Chairman Thomas J. Celona accepted Crevier's decision, stating he has "provided excellent leadership" at Kent Hospital and taken the hospital through "some exceptionally challenging times."
During Crevier's tenure, Kent has implemented a five-year strategic plan, introduced major new clinical information technologies, and increased clinical services such as a new Outpatient Infusion Center and an enhanced sleep lab.
A committee will search for a successor.
