For nearly four decades the same person has been at the helm of Akron Children’s Hospital. That changed Thursday.
Bill Considine has stepped down as CEO and president of the hospital he’s led since 1979. He becomes CEO emeritus until his retirement, set for January 1, 2020. In his new role he’ll focus on child advocacy issues and move away from day-to-day operations.
That will become the focus of new chief executive Grace Wakulchik. Wakulchik acknowledges there are big shoes to fill.
