Olathe Health’s top leader no longer works for the medical system following its takeover by the University of Kansas health system.
Former CEO Stan Holm was one of two executives at a dozen Olathe Health who didn’t continue after the health systems merged. KU Health reached a “mutual agreement” with Holm that it would not continue after the combination, and his four-year tenure ended in late December, according to a statement from Olathe Health.
Jason Hannagan, who had been Olathe Health’s chief ambulatory/legal officer, became Olathe Health’s interim chief executive officer on January 1. Other Olathe executives will report to him and Hannagan will report to Tammy Peterman, president of KU Health’s Kansas City division.
The statement thanked Holm for his contributions to Olathe Health and said KU plans to use its influence as it pursues greater growth.
Holm has more than two decades of hospital management experience and assumed the leadership role in 2019, succeeding Frank Devocelle, who held the role for 43 years. Holm oversaw all entities in the system, including Olathe Medical Center, Miami County Medical Center and Olathe Health Physicians.
