NORFOLK – There’s a shake-up in leadership at Faith Regional Health Services in Norfolk.

In an announcement released Tuesday morning, officials with Faith Regional say their board of directors accepted the resignation of CEO Mark Klosterman on Monday, almost four years to the day that Klosteman’s hire was announced.

Hospital officials say Klosterman stepped down to pursue other opportunities.

Klosterman said in a statement that it was a privilege to work at Faith Regional.

Hospital officials say Klosterman was a key component in a number of growth initiatives, including the addition of a new electronic medical records system and opening 20 new clinics.

In the interim, FRHS’ senior vice president and chief operating officer Kelly Driscoll will serve as CEO.
