Interim CEO chosen for Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital

06.10.2009

BROCKTON — An interim leader for Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital was chosen Tuesday, days after the resignation of longtime president and chief executive officer Norman B. Goodman.

Eugene C. Wallace has been chosen as interim president and CEO, according to a statement from hospital spokeswoman Karen Blomquist.

Goodman, who had been the hospital’s president and CEO since 1990, resigned on Saturday after the hospital began investigating allegations of “inappropriate behavior” against him.
Hospital officials have not revealed the nature of the allegations.

Wallace, a Newton resident, most recently worked as chief financial officer for Atrius Health, the parent company of Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates and four other physician group practices in eastern Massachusetts.

He also was formerly the senior vice president and CFO of the CareGroup Health Care System, and before that was CFO of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, according to the statement.
Wallace was chosen by the executive committee of the hospital’s board of trustees this morning, according to an e-mail to trustees obtained by The Enterprise.
