OSWEGO, NY – The Oswego Health Board of Directors announced today (June 30) that Ann C. Gilpin has chosen to pursue an early retirement as president and CEO, effective immediately.
Gilpin made this decision, in consultation with the board, so that she may pursue personal and family matters that have been postponed by her commitment to leading the changes at Oswego Health over the last eight years.
“Ann has led Oswego Health through the challenges and opportunities of expanding quality health services throughout Oswego County,” said William Clark chairman of the board. “We thank Ann for her many accomplishments that include her support of physician recruitment and the development of more than $45 million in grant funding, which led to the expansion of services at Oswego Health.”
As Oswego Health moves forward, Clark also noted that the health system will continue to develop high-quality services through the important relationships it shares with the medical staff, employees and other health and human service organizations in the county.
“I want to thank the professionals at all levels of the health system that commit themselves to serving the needs of patients, residents and clients,” said Gilpin. “I am confident that their continued dedication and leadership will ensure that Oswego Health will be successful in meeting the care needs of Oswego County residents.”
Operations at all Oswego Health locations will continue to be overseen by the current executive leadership.
The board of directors is currently working to secure interim and long-term leadership that will assure community members continue to have access to the highest level of quality care in the region.
As these plans advance, the board will share more information with the community, Oswego Hospital Medical Staff and all health system employees.
