Central Peninsula Hospital Chief Executive Officer Ryan Smith will leave the hospital later this year.

Central Peninsula General Hospital, Inc. announced the resignation of Chief Executive Officer Ryan Smith on Monday.

According to the announcement, Smith is leaving to take a job in Wyoming. A date for his departure has not been set, but the announcement said it will happen in the next few months.

The Board of Directors plans to announce an interim CEO in the next few weeks, and has begun searching for a new CEO.

The board praised Smith in the announcement, crediting him with leading Central Peninsula Hospital’s expansion.

“With Ryan’s leadership as an agent of change and his commitment to excellence, CPH has experienced spectacular growth over the last five years,” said board president Lore Weimer. “Our quality scores have skyrocketed to become the best in the state, patient and employee satisfaction scores are at a new high, and access to primary care has greatly improved for the members of our community. Ryan also worked diligently to raise community awareness about the future of health care delivery and the constraints imposed by our current lease and operating agreement that could prevent CPH remaining strong in the future.”

Your leadership will be missed.

Ryan, you will be missed! You are a valuable part of this community and your leadership at CPGH will be hard to replace. Good luck in Wyoming.
