Hawaii Pacific Health announced that Jen Chahanovich will become the new president and CEO of Wilcox Memorial Hospital and CEO of Kauai Medical Clinic with the retirement on June 30 of current Wilcox President & CEO Kathy Clark.

Clark announced last year that she would be retiring at the end of June to join her children and grandchildren on the mainland.

Chahanovich has been with Hawaii Pacific Health since 2002 and is the current chief executive officer of Pali Momi Medical Center.

Hawaii Pacific Health President & CEO Ray Vara said, “We owe Kathy a debt of gratitude for her significant contributions to Hawaii Pacific Health, healthcare in Hawaii and the community of Kauai.”

He said Chahanovich is an outstanding administrator and excellent fit for Kauai. “Jen brings a depth of knowledge and experience that will help ensure the continuity of the high level of service, quality and teamwork currently achieved by Wilcox Health.”

The process to find a new leader to head Pali Momi is underway.
