Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE: THC) today announced that Joseph Eazor has stepped down as CEO of Conifer Health Solutions, effective at the end of August. Mr. Eazor has made this decision for personal reasons unrelated to his working relationship at Conifer or Tenet.
Ron Rittenmeyer, Executive Chairman and CEO, said, “We respect Joe’s decision and are sorry to see him leave at this time. He had made solid contributions during his short tenure.”
Mr. Rittenmeyer added, “In the past three months, Conifer has significantly strengthened its team with the additions of Arvind Ramakrishnan as Chief Operating Officer and Matt Bayley as Chief Commercial Operations Officer, which will help ensure continued exceptional performance.”
“We do not expect this change will impact the spin schedule or any of our operations,” Mr. Rittenmeyer said, “And we have begun the process of evaluating candidates for CEO.”
