Hospital system removes CEO over communication breakdown

Gastonia, N.C.-based CaroMont Health is back in the headlines, as its board of directors has removed Randy Kelley from his post as CEO, the Charlotte Business Journal reported. The board cited a "communication breakdown" that hurt relationships among the community, elected officials and CaroMont employees.

The executive's departure comes after the system killed its controversial "cheat death" wellness campaign. However, the board maintains the tagline alone did not motivate the board's decision to oust Kelley. Article
