Kettering Health president replaced

Terri Day, the first woman president of Kettering Health Network, has been replaced by Roy Chew, president of Kettering Medical Center, officials confirmed Tuesday.

“After careful consideration, it became clear that in order to effectively respond to changes in the health care market…we needed a change in leadership,” said Elizabeth Long, a spokeswoman for the hospital system. “We believe that Roy Chew is the right person to lead Kettering Health Network in its goal of operating as one network.”

Chew, who has been with Kettering for 38 years, will be responsible for implementing the structure and providing the oversight that continues the alignment of all eight Kettering hospitals and 120-plus facilities, Long said.

Day joined the faith-based, nonprofit health network in November 2010 as chief operating officer and was named president in November 2012.

“Terri has made a significant difference in our network and our community,” said Fred Manchur, CEO of Kettering Health Network. “She led the development of the One Best Practice initiative guiding the organization’s structure to fully operate as one network. We are grateful for her dedicated service to Kettering Health Network.”
