The MHA Board of Trustees has selected Jon D. Doolittle as its next President and CEO, effective in late October, after an extensive national search. Doolittle comes to the association after 11 years at Mosaic Medical Center – Albany. He succeeds Herb B. Kuhn, who will begin his retirement after leading the association as MHA’s President and CEO since September 2009.
In announcing Doolittle’s selection, Charlie Shields, President and CEO of Truman Medical Centers, Inc. and Chair of the MHA Search Committee said, “The opportunity to bring someone who has such wide-ranging health care experiences, combined with a true passion for the mission and people in Missouri’s hospitals, made Jon the obvious choice for this role. We couldn’t be more pleased and are confident that he will take this outstanding and respected association to new levels of accomplishment.”
Doolittle will be the sixth CEO to lead MHA, which was founded in 1922. He currently serves as President of Mosaic Medical Center – Albany and Chair of the MHA Board of Trustees. A press release was issued today.
