IN THE SPOTLIGHT
William Murray will retire in June 2011 after more than a decade as president and CEO of the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Health System, Lenexa, Kan., the system said. The system will conduct a national search to find a successor. Murray, 65, joined the system in 1978, serving as COO and then CEO of its Billings, Mont., hospital, now known as St. Vincent Healthcare. Murray left the system to be a regional senior vice president with Tenet Healthcare Corp., now based in Dallas, but remained on the Sisters of Charity health system's board of directors. Murray rejoined the system as CEO in 1998 and was named president in 1999. Most recently, Murray oversaw a long process to rewrite the bylaws of Exempla Healthcare, a Denver-based system that the Sisters of Charity system sponsors. The system now has operational control of Exempla, while a local foundation retains five of the 10 board seats, according to an agreement reached in October and finalized in December.
