After 13 years serving as president and CEO of North Kansas City (Mo.) Hospital, David Carpenter will retire, according to a news release.
The board at the 411-bed hospital made the announcement Tuesday. Peggy Schmitt, the facility's vice president & general counsel for the past 19 years will replace him starting on July 21. Their ages weren't provided.
Modern Healthcare in 1989 named Carpenter as one of the magazine's Up & Comers while he worked as president and CEO at Hadley Medical Center in Hays, Kan. He's also served as both the chairman at the Kansas Hospital Association and the Missouri Hospital Association.
