The head of the Colorado Health and Hospital Association, Larry Wall, said he will resign to "pursue other interests" after 31 years on the job. Wall, 61, will step down as president and chief executive officer of the association on Feb. 28. Chief Operating Officer Peter Freytag was named interim president. The association said it will conduct a national search for a successor. Wall's accomplishments during his tenure included making Colorado the first state to voluntarily release hospital-specific mortality data for key conditions, getting the certificate-of-need process repealed and promoting educational programs for hospital trustees, the association said. -- by Andis Robeznieks
