Good Shepherd President and Chief Executive Officer Sally Gammon intends to retire in 2013, the organization recently announced.
The Good Shepherd Board of Trustees has begun a search for her replacement.
Gammon joined Good Shepherd in May 1997 and led the network’s transformation from a rehabilitation provider and home for the disabled to a post-acute care health system. In 1997, Good Shepherd served nearly 10,000 people. In fiscal year 2012, the organization was serving more than 61,000.
With the Good Shepherd Board of Trustees, Gammon initiated a $40 million capital campaign in 2000 that supported the transformation of Good Shepherd’s south Allentown campus with a high tech apartment building, parking deck, healing gardens and the Good Shepherd Health & Technology Center.
Gammon intends to remain involved with Good Shepherd and the local community following her retirement, the network said.
