Porten to Step Down as President and CEO of Holyoke Medical Center
After nearly 28 years as President and CEO of Holyoke Medical Center and its affiliates, Hank J. Porten will be stepping down from his current position during the summer of 2013. Mr. Porten has guided the hospital and its affiliates through many turbulent and challenging times while continuing to provide high-quality health care services to the patients and communities these organizations serve. He will continue to work with these organizations through the parent company, Valley Health Systems, Inc. as they navigate through the continuing challenges facing the health care delivery system.
The Board of Directors has formed a search committee for a new President. This committee is chaired by Ms. Priscilla Mandrachia and recruitment efforts are underway.
