A health system spokesperson said the two departed for purely personal reasons.

Two senior leaders at Beaumont Health are resigning this month, as the Southfield, Michigan–based health system executes a workforce realignment initiative and a growth strategy across state lines.

Christine Stesney-Ridenour, MBA, FACHE, who has been with the organization for 35 years and has been president of the system's Taylor, Trenton, and Wayne acute care campuses since January, resigned effective August 14, a Beaumont Health spokesperson confirmed to HealthLeaders on Friday.

Chris Harrison, CPA, who was named senior vice president of financial operations and corporate finance in March 2018, was effective Friday, according to the spokesperson, who said both executives resigned for purely personal reasons.

The resignations were previously reported by Crain's Detroit Business.

Steven Porter is an associate content manager and Strategy editor for HealthLeaders, a Simplify Compliance brand.
