Dr. Kevin Yingling has advised the Marshall Health Network (MHN) Board of Directors of his plans to retire as the CEO of MHN next year.

“It has been my honor and privilege to serve the patients, community and region,” said Dr. Yingling. “As I look across Marshall Health Network, I am inspired by the talent and positive momentum of our team, and I know that together, we will continue to reach new milestones. I look forward to working with the MHN board of directors throughout the selection process for the next CEO to guide our system forward.”

“We are deeply grateful to Dr. Yingling for his many contributions to MHN,” said David Fox, chair, MHN board of directors. “As the first CEO of MHN, Dr. Yingling sought to understand the system’s needs as he led us through the challenges of COVID, welcomed Rivers Health to the system, developed relationships that supported growth throughout the region, and unified the health system with Joan C. Edwards Marshall University School of Medicine and Marshall Health to create our newly integrated academic health system. Perhaps most important, Dr. Yingling instilled a spirit of servant leadership. His kindness, compassion and collaboration have created a strong foundation we will continue to build upon at MHN.”

The MHN board has developed a CEO selection committee comprised of board members and leadership and selected an executive firm to begin the process of a national CEO search. Upon selection of the next CEO, Dr. Yingling has committed to supporting the transition and onboarding of the new CEO.
