Shake-up underway at Singing River Health System

Posted: Updated:
PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) -

WLOX News has confirmed a shake-up is underway at Singing River Health System. According to SRHS spokesman Richard Lucas, upper management positions are being restructured.

Lucas confirmed the chief operating officer of programs position held by Lynn Truelove has been eliminated. The head of information technology position held by George Evans has also been eliminated.

These are the first significant moves by Kevin Holland since he became chief executive officer of SRHS on March 1.   

Lucas said the restructuring at Singing River has been going on for several weeks, and more positions could be eliminated or combined with others.  No final decision on that has been made at this time. 

Lucas said the goal of the restructuring is to make the health system more financially sound and better prepared to deal with the changing future of health care.  He added that other system employees will take on the responsibilities of those who are leaving.

Back in March, SRHS officials revealed that they were facing a $88 million shortage because a former auditor overestimated the amount of money the hospital would collect from uninsured and underinsured patients. The error was recently discovered after the hospital system hired a new audit firm.

Singing River Health System provides healthcare for a quarter million people in the six southern counties, as well as Alabama.
