Shakeup at Carle: Two high-ranking executives out

URBANA — Two high-ranking executives at the Carle health system have resigned.

John Snyder, chief operating officer of Carle and chief executive officer of Carle-owned Health Alliance Medical Plans, and Stephanie Beever, Carle chief strategy officer, are no longer with the health system as of this week, according to an announcement Friday.

Carle declined to provide further information about the two departures or Snyder's and Beever's future plans.

“Out of respect for any individuals’ privacy, Carle doesn’t provide details when someone leaves the organization,” said Carle spokeswoman Laura Mabry.

The resignations came less than four months after Carle's former chief medical officer, Dr. Matthew Gibb, left this past February.

Snyder has held several leadership positions at Carle.

"His leadership influenced many aspects of the health system's operations, including the integration between Carle Clinic Association and Carle Foundation, and chartering a course for an integrated model of care delivery," Carle said in a statement provided to News-Gazette Media.

Beever was said to have been instrumental in such endeavors as creating the Rural Alliance for Exceptional Care and establishing partnerships with regional health systems.

Interim replacements for both have been named.

They include Carle's Chief Financial Officer Dennis Hesch, who will assume responsibilities for Health Alliance and the strategy division.

Matt Kolb, chief administrative officer, will assume responsibilities for clinic and hospital operations, and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Chuck Dennis will be responsible for clinical care and Population Health integration.
