Thomas Beeman will leave St. Thomas Health Services, Nashville, but instead of retiring from hospital administration as previously announced, he will take the top job at Lancaster (Pa.) General, a system including 520-bed Lancaster General Hospital, a physician group and other facilities. Beeman, 51, announced in January that he was planning to leave his job as president and chief executive officer at five-hospital St. Thomas to focus on consulting work, finishing his Ph.D. and working in the U.S. Naval Reserve, in which he is a captain. Beeman was not immediately available for comment. Effective June 1, Beeman will fill the spot vacated by Michael Young, who resigned as president and CEO of Lancaster General last May for undisclosed personal reasons. -- by Vince Galloro
