According to a media statement from Jim Bogan, LifePoint President of the U.P. Market, Floyd Bounds has resigned as CEO of Bell Hospital.
Bounds helped lead the hospital through the transition following the acquisition of Bell by LifePoint in December of last year.
LifePoint Hospitals has begun a nationwide search to find a new CEO. In the meantime, Mitchell Leckelt, Assistant Administrator for Marquette General Hospital, will serve as an interim CEO as an "on loan" executive until a permanent replacement is named.
