Dan Wolterman, president and CEO of Memorial Hermann Health System, announced in October his intention to retire in mid-2016.

The Memorial Hermann Health System board hired Spencer Stuart—an executive search firm—to conduct a national search for a new president and CEO, according to Memorial Hermann officials.

“Unfortunately, we knew this day was coming for some time,” said Will Williams, chairman of the Memorial Hermann Health System board. “So in the interest of a smooth transition, the board and executive leadership began the succession planning to accommodate [Wolterman’s] wishes to retire when he turns 60 in July.”

Wolterman joined the Memorial Hermann Health System in 1999 and was quickly promoted to CEO in 2002. During his tenure as the health system’s CEO, Wolterman helped Memorial Hermann achieve consistent growth. Under his executive leadership, Memorial Hermann became the largest not-for-profit health system in southeast Texas.

Wolterman also headed the creation of the Memorial Hermann Community Benefit Corporation—an organization that collaborates with other health care providers and government officials—during his tenure.

“It has been a great honor to lead one of the most respected health care systems in the nation,” Wolterman said. “It has been gratifying and a privilege to work with a group of incredible employees and physicians that are among the best in the country.”
