Robert Wright, president and CEO of Ingham Regional Medical Center, announced Friday that he is resigning, effective Monday. Wright says his personal health is the reason for his quick and unexpected departure.
Wright has been head of the hospital system since May of 2006.
The manager of Ingham's Orthopedic Hospital, Patrick Salow, will be the interim head of the entire medical center.
E. James Barrett, chairman of the medical center's board of directors says "We will now turn our attention toward implementing the process to find a successor."
