On Monday morning, the board of directors for Mountain States Health Alliance announced that Alan Levine will assume duties as CEO and president on Jan. 6, 2014.

During a press conference Monday morning, Mountain States Health Alliance announced that Alan Levine will succeed Dennis Vonderfecht as the health system’s president and CEO.

Before making the announcement, however, Clem Wilkes, who chairs MSHA’s board of directors, recognized Vonderfecht for his tenure as the company’s leader.

“It’s almost unheard of in our industry for one individual to remain as CEO for 10 years, let alone two decades,” Wilkes said. “Dennis, when he retires, will have been here 24 years, and for that, we are truly grateful. Dennis’ insight, his leadership will be hard to replace, but we think we’ve found the person to do it.”

Levine will begin his new role at MSHA with more than 20 years of experience in various forms of health care administration.
