Norman had joined St. Joseph Medical Center in 2009 after three executives, including then president and CEO John Tolmie, resigned in the wake of a federal investigation into St. Joseph's relationship with a cardiology group.
Norman announced plans to leave St. Joseph Medical Center in July, according to a news release.
St. Joseph Medical Center said in November that it had agreed to pay $22 million to settle allegations that the hospital's contracts with MidAtlantic Cardiovascular Associates led to kickbacks and prohibited referrals.
Last month, the Maryland Board of Physicians revoked the medical license for Dr. Mark Midei, a former partner in the cardiology group who was later employed by St. Joseph Medical Center. Midei had allegedly billed Medicare and Medicaid for unnecessary procedures.
“Chuck understands what St. Joseph Medical Center has accomplished over the past two years,” said Beth O'Brien, senior vice president and group executive officer of Catholic Health Initiatives, in a statement. “More importantly, he understands that the future will be built on a strong relationship with the medical staff and St. Joseph's unwavering commitment to quality care.”
St. Joseph Medical Center is owned by Denver-based Catholic Health Initiatives.
