Tampa (Fla.) General Hospital's president and CEO, Ron Hytoff, plans to retire. Hytoff, 66, has been CEO since February 2000. The hospital said it would immediately begin a nationwide search to replace Hytoff, who will remain at the helm through the transition or until no later than June 2013. In a news release, the hospital hailed Hytoff as a turnaround architect. He stepped into the COO role in 1997 as Tampa General was transitioning from a public to a private not-for-profit hospital and losing millions of dollars each year. He previously was president and CEO of the University of Louisville (Ky.) Hospital. … Steward Health Care System, Boston, hired Emily Holliman as president of Norwood (Mass.) Hospital. Holliman most recently was CEO of Sebastian River Medical Center in Sebastian, Fla. John Holiver, Norwood's president since May 2011, stepped down and is no longer with Steward, a system spokesman said in an e-mail.
