Aultman Hospital in Canton has a new leader.
Aultman Health Foundation on Thursday announced the appointment of longtime health system executive Christopher E. Remark as the hospital’s chief executive, effective immediately.
Remark reports to Edward J. Roth III, president and chief executive of Aultman Health Foundation. Prior to Remark’s appointment, Roth served as CEO of both the hospital and the health system.
Along with the Canton hospital, the nonprofit Aultman Health Foundation owns and operates Aultman Orrville Hospital and AultCare insurance company.
Remark, 43, has been an executive with the Canton-area health system since 1997, when he joined Aultman as a financial analyst.
Before his promotion, Remark was the hospital’s chief operating officer.
Remark’s other previous roles at Aultman Hospital included chief financial officer, vice president of strategy, project consultant and associate vice president.
“Chris’ contributions have been diverse and critical to our success,” Roth said in a prepared statement. “This appointment will allow him to assume full responsibility for the daily operation of Aultman Hospital. As we prepare for the Affordable Care Act and the challenges of health-care reform, we know we will need to continuously improve our quality and become even more efficient and more cost-effective if we want to continue to meet our mission to lead our community to improved health. This appointment will help us achieve that goal.”
Remark’s salary was not disclosed.
Remark earned a bachelor of arts degree in finance and a master’s of business degree from Walsh University.
He and his family reside in Lake Township.
