St. Mary’s CEO announces retirement


Lee Myles plans to retire in 2015.

Lee Myles, President and Chief Executive Officer at St. Mary’s Health System, recently announced his intention to retire during the coming year. Myles’ departure is expected by the end of 2015. During that time, a search process will recruit and select a new President and Chief Executive Officer for the Health System.

Myles has been with St. Mary’s since 1992, when he was hired as Vice President-Chief Operating Officer of the Medical Center. In 2006, he was named Chief Executive Officer of the Medical Center and in 2010 he was named President and Chief Executive Officer of St. Mary’s Health System.

“I have had the pleasure of working alongside Lee for the past twenty-two years,” said Covenant Health Systems President and CEO David Lincoln. “He has continually impressed me with his inherent goodness, his loyalty to the church and his tireless devotion to our mission.”

“I know I speak for the Board when I say we deeply appreciate all of Lee’s contributions through the years to both the health system and the community at large,” said St. Mary’s Board Chair Craig Gunderson. “Just as importantly, we appreciate that his concern for the system has given us the opportunity to undertake an orderly and deliberate transition.”

According to Lincoln, he and Gunderson will appoint a Search Committee, comprised of Board Members and St. Mary’s physicians, which Gunderson will lead. The committee could take up to nine months to complete its work.
