— Providence Medical Center and St. John Hospital are saying goodbye to their top leader, who is leaving after five years at the helm of the hospitals in Kansas City, Kan., and Leavenworth.

Mike Dorsey resigned as president and chief executive officer of Providence and St. John to become CEO of Carondelet Health’s St. Joseph Medical Center, Kansas City, Mo. Dorsey’s resignation is effective today.

Randall G. Nyp has been appointed by the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Health System to serve as interim chief executive officer of Providence and St. John.

Dorsey joined the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Health System in 2000 as the vice president of network development at St. Francis Medical Center, Topeka and advanced to the hospital’s executive vice president and chief operating officer. He came to Providence and St. John in the fall of 2006 as interim CEO, and was named the permanent CEO in April 2007.

During his tenure at Providence, the hospital completed construction of a $10 million dollar emergency services department expansion, tripling its size and creating a state-of-the-art facility. He also has been instrumental in developing the hospitals’ Providence Care network of family practice clinics, as well as building the cardiology and oncology service lines.

Nyp brings more than 25 years of experience in executive leadership to the interim CEO role. Most recently, he spent six years as senior vice president and chief operating officer at Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System, Spartanburg, S.C., a leading not-for-profit health care system including several hospitals, a regional physician network, and two ambulatory surgery centers, both physician joint ventures.

The Midwest is home to Nyp, who is originally from Hays. He has held multiple leadership positions for 19 years at St. Francis Health Center, Topeka, and Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital, Denver. He was also president and CEO of Via Christi Regional Medical Center and Wichita Health Network from 1997 to 2004.

Nyp begins his position as interim CEO at Providence and St. John effective Monday, Aug. 29.
