12:48 AFTERNOON UPDATE: Kindred accepts early retirement package

GLASGOW —

Dan Foutch, chairman of the board of T J Samson Regional Health, today announced the retirement of Bill Kindred as CEO of T J Regional Health, T J Samson Community Hospital, and T J Health Partners, effective Jan. 1, 2014. He also announced the appointment of Henry Royse as Interim CEO of those organizations, effective the same date.

Mr. Foutch stated that Mr. Kindred has made a decision to take early retirement, as a part of a plan made available to other long time employees of T J Samson-one requiring a decision by Dec.16, 2013, with an effective retirement date of Jan. 1, 2014. Mr. Royse is also resigning as a director of T J Regional Health and T J Samson Community Hospital

Kindred stated that the timing is right with the offering of the early retirement plan and recent completion of the pavilion, which he considers perhaps to be the most significant achievement of his career, and one in which he takes extreme pride in being involved. “The Pavilion is now up and running, providing high quality convenient health care service to our community. Since its opening in May, 2013, it has experienced more than 70,000 patient encounters, which in itself is a testament to the need for the facility and its acceptance in our service community. I am indeed grateful for the support the board of T J Samson Hospital has given me and all of our management team in bringing this dream to reality.

"I am thankful to have been given the opportunity to lead and serve our employees and physicians who are dedicated to providing quality and compassionate healthcare to the residents of our region. I will miss working with this wonderful group of dedicated caregivers at T J Samson. I also want to thank the patients and their families who have entrusted us with their care. I am confident that T J Samson will continue to provide the highest possible level of health care to our community under the leadership of Mr. Royse. I look forward to my retirement and spending quality time with my family and working in our family business.”
