The Alegent Health Board of Directors accepted the resignation of President and CEO Wayne Sensor today. The resignation is effective immediately.
Sensor has been with Alegent since 2004. The board has asked former President and CEO RIchard Hachten to serve on an interim basis as the search for a permanent replacement moves forward.
Sensor's work was praised in a statement released this morning by Leslie Anderson, Chairperson of the board, "Our Board, along with physicians and employees wish to thank Wayne for his vision, commitment and dedication to Alegent Health and to our community. His legacy of innovation and commitment to high quality, low-cost care, patient-centered care will carry on through our employees, our physicians and our Mission," said Anderson.
Last month, doctors at both Immanuel Medical Center and Bergan Mercy gave Sensor 'no-confidence' votes for his leadership and decision-making.
