Kaweah Delta CEO Receives Church Assignment; Search Process Initiated For Replacement
In follow-up to a Dec. 15 announcement that Kaweah Delta CEO Lindsay Mann
had accepted a call to serve as a mission president for the Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in a Spanish-speaking area, Mann and
his wife, Lesa, have received their assignment.
The couple will preside over the Mexico City South East Mission of the
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
"We are honored to have received this call to serve and thrilled with
our assignment to serve in Mexico City," said Mann. "It has
been a tremendous privilege to serve as Kaweah Delta’s CEO and to
have been involved with each of you in developing a healthcare system
that is truly remarkable relative to the breadth and caliber of services
which we offer. Thank you for your support and hard work in making our
many plans over the years become a reality!"
Relative to the future, Kaweah Delta’s Board of Directors met on
Dec.19, and concluded that it will conduct both an internal and external
search for Kaweah Delta’s new chief executive officer. This process
has now been initiated and will take place during the coming months. During
the next several months Mann will continue in his role as CEO and will
likely conclude his leadership at Kaweah Delta on or about March 31, 2017.
This will provide adequate time for Mann's successor to prepare for
and assume his or her role and for Mann to prepare for his new leadership
responsibilities in Mexico City.
"Relative to the months ahead, let’s make them the very best
by continuing to provide our patients and their families with the best
health care available in the Central Valley," Mann told staff. "I
am proud of all you do - and do so well! Relative to the future I have
every confidence that Kaweah Delta’s Board of Directors will make
an outstanding decision relative to selection of our future CEO. Kaweah
Delta certainly has a very bright future ahead - and you have a critical
role to play in that future!"
