Erlanger Eliminates, Restructures Positions In Management Reorganization

Monday, October 21, 2019

As part of a management reorganization, Erlanger Health System officials announced the elimination and restructuring of 30 management positions, effective this month.  

In making the announcement, Erlanger President and CEO Will Jackson, M.D., said Monday’s management realignment effort at the Chattanooga-based health system "will better position Erlanger to meet the changing landscape of healthcare and focus on providing exceptional care."

He said, “Over the past few months we have re-examined the management structure of our organization in detail, and we are confident this action will enable us to act more decisively and efficiently for the benefit of our patients and community." 

Erlanger Board Chairman Mike Griffin said, “Dr. Jackson has the full support of the Board in making these very tough decisions.”

In a meeting last month, Dr. Jackson informed Erlanger managers of his plans to thoroughly review Erlanger’s management structure.  “Reaching our goal of becoming a more streamlined and aligned organization required prompt and decisive action,” Dr. Jackson said. “While these decisions are never easy, we have tried to be thoughtful and respectful of everyone impacted by this management reorganization."
