Provena Health, a six-hospital system in Mokena, Ill., replaced President and Chief Executive Officer Steven Hunter with Guy Wiebking, who held the position on an interim basis before Hunter was hired in April 2007.
Provena spokeswoman Lisa Lagger said Wiebkings appointment was effective today and declined to explain the circumstances of Hunters departure, except to say, Steve is no longer with Provena. Wiebking, 60, was a charter member of Provenas board of directors and was its chairman for five years. Before retiring, he was a vice president in Abbot Laboratories hospital products division. -- by Gregg Blesch
