Mike Schmidt, president of St. Josephs Hospital, Marshfield, Wis., has announced plans to retire in January following what will be an 11-year tenure as the top executive at the hospital.
Schmidt, 62, told his senior leaders and board of directors at the Roman Catholic hospital on June 25 that he intends to step down and assist in the leadership transition. A new president was not immediately named. St. Josephs Hospital is the largest acute-care hospital operated by regional health system Ministry Health Care, Milwaukee, which is owned by Marian Health System, a decentralized system with corporate offices in Tulsa, Okla., that includes 15 acute-care hospitals.
Schmidt has been at the hospital for 25 years in various leadership roles.
