Beleaguered Fairview Health CEO to Retire in July
Fairview Health Services CEO Mark Eustis will retire this summer amid allegations that the Minneapolis-based health system he led for five years used strong-armed and possibly illegal debt collection tactics against patients.
Eustis, 59, joined Fairview in 2007 and his contract was due to expire on July 31. Fairview's board of directors met in a special session Wednesday and voted not to renew it.
"Mark committed to five years as Fairview's CEO," Board Chair Chuck Mooty said in prepared remarks. "During that time, he established a clear, compelling vision for the future of healthcare delivery at Fairview."
Mooty will serve as interim CEO at the seven-hospital system, effective August 1, until a successor is named.
Attempts by HealthLeaders Media to contact Eustis on Thursday were not successful. The health system said it would have no comment beyond the media release announcing Eustis's departure.
