BATON ROUGE - The head of Baton Rouge General's hospital system, Bill Holman, announced today he's retiring from the network.
Holman, 66, spent 48 years in the health care industry, including more than 12 with General Health System. During that time the system received numerous awards and recognitions, and Holman led efforts to create a satellite campus of the Tulane University School of Medicine at the Baton Rouge General's Mid City campus.
"I leave Baton Rouge General and General Health System with a great deal of pride in what we have accomplished," Holman said. "We have a board committed to fulfilling our mission, a dedicated medical staff, and employees who are passionate, loyal and very caring."
The system's Board of Trustees named Dr. Evelyn Hayes the interim president and CEO through the search for Holman's replacement.
