St. Lukeís reports departure of CEO Jon Moses

Express Staff Writer

Officials of St. Lukeís Regional Medical Center in Boise announced at 4 p.m. Friday that Jon Moses will no longer be CEO of the hospitalís branch in the Wood River Valley.

St. Lukeís administration negotiated a new arrangement with Moses during the week prior to the announcement.

Moses will work as a consultant to St. Lukeís for the next six months to help finish projects that are in progress and to help with the transition to a new CEO, when one is found.

The reasons for Mosesí departure, which St. Lukeís director of public relations Kerry George said was by "mutual agreement," are not clear.

"I wonít talk" to the media, Moses said.

Moses was "very happy" with the arrangement, said Preston Strazza, chairman of the Community Board, whose 16 members St. Lukeís appoints to help guide the hospitalís Wood River Valley operations.

"The board recognizes and acknowledges that Jon was very successful, particularly in the last year," Strazza said.

St. Lukeís was "very aware of the accomplishments," Strazza said.

"I donít think that Jon can take full credit for everything thatís happened," he added, referring to successes like the hospitalís reduction of infection rates.

Both St. Lukeís Wood River Medical Center and Moses were "interested in severing the relationship," Strazza said.

Director of nursing Theresa Bush, and other St. Lukeís executives, are overseeing the Wood River medical centerís operations until an interim CEO is found. The hospital and the Community Board plan to begin a search for a permanent CEO as soon as possible.

Moses worked for the medical center for five years, overseeing its conversion from a publicly owned facility to a privately owned one. He oversaw the construction of the new hospital, which opened two miles south of Ketchum on Nov. 19, 2000.
