CEO Search and Transition Committee Findings

Vero Beach, FLA (April 27, 2017) — The CEO Search and Transition Committee, charged with identifying a new President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for Indian River Medical Center (IRMC), decided to slow down the search as recommended by the Executive Search Firm, Spencer Stuart.  On a parallel track, the Indian River County Hospital District’s Collaborative Committee is evaluating the current governance structure of the Medical Center as well as alternative structures that might best assure high quality healthcare services for our community for years to come.

Spencer Stuart’s recommendation was based upon the opinion that uncertainty related to the governance structure might limit the pool of high quality candidates.  Furthermore, potential changes to the governance structure will most likely shape the characteristics set as the highest priority in selection of the new CEO.

Given significant shifts to the healthcare landscape in Florida and across the country, the firm’s consultants advised IRMC to continue refining CEO position and candidate specifications as new information is revealed through the District’s Collaborative Committee process.  This will ensure selection of the most qualified candidate who possesses the competencies needed to guide IRMC into the future.

“Having a clear direction will help us better attract a highly-qualified pool of applicants,” said IRMC Board of Directors Chairman Wayne T. Hockemyer, Ph.D.

In meetings with 77 stakeholders, including IRMC employees, Medical Staff, Auxilians and community leaders, Spencer Stuart heard a recurring theme of optimism surrounding anticipated outcomes of the District’s Collaborative Committee.

IRMC’s nine-member CEO Search and Transition Committee will pursue an aggressive candidate selection and interview process in the fall, building upon findings of the District’s Collaborative Committee. IRMC CEO Jeffrey L. Susi will remain in his role until the end of 2017, or until a new CEO is identified.
