COLUMBUS, OH - Several area hospitals are under new leadership after the announcement of changes in executive staff positions at OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital and OhioHealth Shelby Hospital.

OhioHealth Mansfield and Shelby Hospitals' President, Jean Halpin, will become vice president of Customer Experience, Ease, and Access later in fall 2018. Halpin was chosen to lead both hospitals in March 2014, when OhioHealth merged with MedCentral Health System. Halpin's leadership brought several innovations to the area's hospitals and investments in the local healthcare options, including investments in advanced technology, new medical offices at Mansfield Hospital, a new emergency care location, and improvements to patient wait time and satisfaction.

“It has been a pleasure to serve this community the last four years,” said Halpin. “Our teams have experienced significant change as we integrated Mansfield and Shelby hospitals to OhioHealth. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished together and am comforted that a veteran leader like Vinson is stepping in to lead Mansfield and Shelby Hospitals into the future.”

After Halpin vacates the position, OhioHealth senior vice president and chief financial officer Vinson Yates will step into the role of president of Mansfield Hospital and Shelby Hospital.

In his 30-year career with OhioHealth, Yates has served as president of OhioHealth Grant Medical Center in Columbus and vice president of finance at both OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital and OhioHealth Grant Medical Center, along with other miscellaneous roles.

“When it became clear that Jean would be taking on a new system role, I eagerly raised my hand at the opportunity to lead Mansfield and Shelby Hospitals,” said Yates. “As I look back on my career, my greatest passion has been in the hospital, working shoulder to shoulder with our clinicians, physicians and the community to provide the best possible experience and outcomes for our patients. Jean has done an incredible job of positioning our hospitals for success in the future and I am grateful for the strong foundation she has built.” 

Yates and Halpin will be working together to ease the transition into their new respective roles within the company.
