Greenville (S.C.) Hospital System said Frank Pinckney, its president and chief executive officer since December 1991, will retire in 2006, once a replacement has been hired. Pinckney, who will turn 68 this year, notified the board four years ago that he hoped to retire this year after the system reached several goals. Among them: a larger endowment, more partnerships with health educators, stronger ties with the local community and upgraded facilities, including a new campus in Greer, S.C., that eventually will house the system's fourth acute-care hospital. Pinckney joined what was then known as Greenville General Hospital in 1963 as assistant manager of its charity-care program after leaving the Air Force. He spent his entire career at Greenville as the hospital expanded to a multi-hospital system under the late Robert Toomey, who died in 2001. -- by Vince Galloro
