The CEO of St. Luke’s Magic Valley Medical Center has resigned after nearly three years with the hospital.
Mark Schwartz resigned April 19 for unspecified reasons, according to the Times-News. The hospital board held a closed-door meeting that night and board chairman Russ Newcomb said Schwartz’s departure had been discussed for a couple of weeks.
Schwartz helped St. Luke’s Magic Valley through a number of issues, including the ongoing construction of a new hospital building in northwest Twin Falls and a disagreement with Twin Falls County over the lease and remodeling of a downtown clinic building.
Pate said he would fill in for Schwartz over the next several weeks before naming an interim leader for the hospital.
