A division president at Community Health Systems overseeing operations of hospitals in the Eastern U.S. has resigned.
Paul Smith joined CHS in 2008. Before overseeing hospitals in Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Missouri, North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia as division president Smith was a vice president for that division.
He worked at another hospital management for 14 years where he served as CEO of a hospital in North Carolina before joining CHS.
Smith resigned from CHS on May 15, and will work through June 30. CHS has already identified interim leadership to work with the facilities Smith managed.
