Billings Gazette, March 19, 2012

Nearly 10 months after receiving a vote of no-confidence from the medical staff, St. Peter's Hospital President and CEO John Solheim resigned Thursday, effective April 30, after an 11-year-tenure. Tom Gregg, vice president for human resources and physician services at St. Peter's, will serve as interim leader of the hospital while it undertakes a national search for a replacement, officials said. Rick Hays, chairman of the hospital board, would not discuss whether Solheim will receive a severance package from the hospital. Asked if the hospital board initiated the CEO's departure, Hays said only that Solheim resigned Thursday morning and that the board was continuing to implement its action plan, developed last summer in the wake of doctor complaints, to work with the administration and medical staff to improve medical care.
