Memorial scraps high-ranking position



A couple weeks ago, it was the CEO. Then it was the board. Today, it's the CSO — if that's what you can call the "chief strategy officer" at Memorial Health System — who's saying goodbye.

Carm Moceri will be leaving MHS, and apparently no one will be taking his place. Here's the press release:

Memorial’s Chief Strategy Officer Position Eliminated

Memorial Health System is eliminating the chief strategy officer position from its senior leadership team. This change is a result of the anticipated transition to University of Colorado Health, which is expected to occur later this summer after a public vote.

This position has been held by Carm Moceri, who will be leaving the organization. Moceri’s last day has not been determined.

The primary responsibilities of a chief strategy officer are, as the name implies, exploring and planning strategic initiatives for an organization. Until Memorial’s future governance is determined, there is a minimal need for strategic planning.

Moceri was asked to assist Memorial on a consulting basis in February 2008. Later, he was hired to oversee Memorial’s strategic planning. He played a critical role in positioning Memorial to withstand sweeping changes in the health care industry at the local, state and national levels.

Moceri began his health care career as a nurse before quickly rising to a leadership role. He has more than 20 years of executive experience, including as president of several hospitals in multi-hospital, multi-state health systems.
