Jefferson County Healthcare announced the resignation of Lisa Holt, chief ancillary officer for the hospital. Ms Holt, had been with JHC since May 2013, according to her profile on LinkedIn. Prior to that she had been Nursing Director of Education at Centura Institute in Orlando Florida. There was no word on what Ms. Holt will be doing next. But the unexpected resignation and her immediate leaving the senior position seemed difficult to understand, since she appeared to have a very positive relationship with the rest of the Senior Leadership Group surrounding Mr. Glenn. There was no one immediately named as a successor. It would seem that Mr. Glenn would have wanted her to help with a transition period, and that JHC would have made an announcement thanking her for her work. As of Monday morning, her photograph had been removed from the JHC web site leadership team.
Turnover at JHC appears to above average. Mr. Glenn has admitted to turnover being an issue in public meetings in the past few years. However, it has never apparently been a significant issue in his reviews, completed by the Hospital Commissioners.
