Silverton Health President/CEO Rick Cagen announced March 24 he will retire July 1.
Sarah Fronza will take his place as the interim CEO and continue the negotiations for the proposed partnership between Legacy Health and Silverton Health.
When Cagen started at Silverton Health almost five years ago, he said it was his goal to retire by the time he was 65 years old. He will be 64 in May.
“When we began this process 18 months ago to find a suitable partner, I knew there needed to be a transition in the management team and this is the perfect time for the transition,” Cagen said.
