John King, the longtime chief executive officer at Legacy Health Systems and last year's AHA board chairman, has stepped down from the top job at the Portland, Ore., system.
In a transition planned nearly two years ago, King relinquished the top spot at the five-hospital system on Feb. 1. He was replaced by Robert Pallari, Legacy's president and chief operating officer. Pallari, 50, was given the president's title last summer.
King, 60, has headed the system since 1991.
