Jewish Hospital & St. Marys HealthCare, Louisville, Ky., said that Timothy Jarm has resigned as senior vice president and chief executive officer of the Jewish Hospital campus in downtown Louisville, effective March 1.
Jeff Polson, a spokesman for the system, declined to say why Jarm left his post of three years. Jarm began working with the former Jewish Hospital Healthcare Services in 1992 as a system vice president, Polson said. Jewish Hospital & St. Marys HealthCare is a 75-25 joint venture of JHHS and Catholic Health Initiatives, Denver, formed in 2005. In 1999, Jarm was named one of Modern Healthcare's "Up and Comers," an award for promising healthcare executives who are 40 years old or younger
While a national search is conducted to find Jarms replacement, Polson said executives at the downtown campus will report to Deborah Molnar, senior vice president and chief operating officer. Molnar was promoted to COO earlier this week, after filling the position on an interim basis. Jarms resignation was not related to Molnars promotion, Polson said. -- by Vince Galloro
