Hennepin Healthcare System CEO announces resignation

by Hennepin Healthcare

Today Hennepin Healthcare System Chief Executive Officer Jon L. Pryor, MD, MBA, announced his resignation. The healthcare system board will meet this week to consider John Cumming, MD, MBA as acting chief executive.

“It has been an honor to lead this outstanding organization for the past six years,” said Pryor. “I am grateful for the opportunity to have worked with such passionate, mission-driven people who are so thoroughly committed to caring for our community.”

Pryor joined Hennepin Healthcare System in April 2013. Under his leadership, the system expanded its clinic network by opening clinics in new markets and renovating and expanding existing clinics.

In 2015, the system added home care and hospice through the integration of MVNA, and last year Hennepin Healthcare System opened a six-story, 377,000 sq. ft. Clinic & Specialty Center consolidating most of its clinics on the downtown campus into a new state-of-the-art facility.

“We are grateful to Dr. Pryor for leading us through this period of growth,” said Sheila Riggs, DDS, MS, DMSc, Hennepin Healthcare System board chair. “He is an innovator who helped the organization reconnect with the community and Hennepin Healthcare System is stronger today because of his leadership.”

A search for a new CEO will begin later this month.
