Ticonderoga Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington and Moses-Ludington in Ticonderoga have announced the appointment of William “Chip” Holmes as president and chief executive officer at the Ticonderoga facility, effective Oct. 31.
He will also join the vice president team within Fletcher Allen Health Care.
Holmes comes to Moses-Ludington from Quorum Health Resources, based in Brentwood, Tenn.
Quorum is a hospital management company focused on non-profit hospital services. Holmes was a regional vice president responsible for executive and operational oversight of 14 non-profit hospitals and health systems in Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi.
“I am looking forward to leading Moses-Ludington through the dynamic environment all hospitals face in this era of health-care reform,” Holmes said. “Even with the challenges ahead, the organization will have many opportunities to shape health care in the region, particularly as we explore potential initiatives with the Hudson Headwaters Health Network.
“Further, the additional expertise that is available to Moses-Ludington through the affiliation with Fletcher Allen will be of great benefit as we go forward,” he said. “I can’t wait to begin and to meet people in the community.”
Sandra Bolton, chair of Inter-Lakes Health Board of Directors, described Holmes as a “seasoned hospital executive.” Moses-Ludington is part of the Inter-Lakes Health.
“He is no stranger to our region,” Bolton said. “He brings the experience of serving in small and large facilities and their respective health systems in both rural and urban settings.”
Holmes is a native of Fairfax, Vt., and former CEO of Littleton Regional Hospital in New Hampshire.
Holmes will replace Charles Miceli, vice president of supply chain and pharmacy services at Fletcher Allen, who served as Moses-Ludington’s interim chief executive officer while the search for a permanent CEO was conducted.
Miceli has served in that position since April 2011.
Holmes is married to Margie Laferriere from St. Johnsbury, Vt., and has two teenage daughters, Carson and Isabelle Holmes.
