Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Sponsored Ministries, Inc. (FSCCM), announce today that Mark Herzog will retire as president and CEO of Holy Family Memorial (HFM). He will end his time at HFM on March 30. “We thank Mark for his many years of service to HFM and the Manitowoc community. His dedication to the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Sponsored Ministries is greatly appreciated,” said Dan McGinty, president and CEO of FSCCM, and Jeffrey Dunn, chair of the HFM Board of Directors.
During the search process to find a new permanent CEO for HFM, Brett Norell, FSCCM’s vice president of finance/CFO, and former vice president of finance/CFO at HFM, will serve as interim CEO there beginning April 2. Norell will continue in his role as FSCCM’s vice president of finance/CFO during this interim period. Herzog will continue in an advisory role with FSCCM until May 4.
Herzog told colleagues at HFM that he decided to retire to make way for new leadership who possess the skills needed for today’s health care environment and to ensure a vibrant future for HFM. “I have reached a decision to retire from my position as president and CEO of Holy Family Memorial at the end of this month to open the door for new leadership with just such skills and perspectives. It has been a privilege to serve the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity and to work with each of you since September 17, 2001,” Herzog said. “While in many ways it may seem a totally different world since then, in a few key ways it is not. The mission is very real at Holy Family Memorial. Nearly every visitor notes the difference when meeting HFM for the first time; its warmth, its people and their caring. HFM is gifted with the best providers and staff in the Lakeshore, doing the right thing for the right reasons, and always for our community. I will speak with pride of HFM’s achievements and remember with immense gratitude the experiences and insights I gained from you.”
