CEO turnover in rural northwest hospitals.
Hosp Health Serv Adm. 1993 Fall; 38(3):353-74.HH

Abstract

This study examines rates of and reasons for turnover among administrators from 148 rural hospitals in four northwestern states. Data were obtained from a survey of CEOs who left their positions between 1987 and 1990 and from a survey of board members from those same hospitals. During the study period, 85 CEO turnovers occurred at 78 hospitals. High-turnover hospitals were generally smaller than those facilities with fewer turnovers. The annual rate of CEO turnover was 15 percent in 1988 and 16 percent in 1989. The reasons for turnover most often cited by those in their positions for less than four years were due to: seeking a better position elsewhere, an unstable health care system, conflict with hospital board members or with medical staff, and inadequate salary. High levels of self-reported job satisfaction and job performance by turnover CEOs contrasted to the much lower performance evaluations reported by hospital board members. Nearly three out of four board members indicated they would not rehire their departed CEOs. CEOs perceived their professional weaknesses to center on deficiencies in leadership and financial skills as well as problems with physician, hospital board, and community relations.
