PUBLIC STATEMENT - October 16, 2021 | Equitas Health

Public Statement 10/16/21

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I’m writing to announce that we have accepted William Hardy’s resignation from the role of President and CEO, effective immediately.

Equitas Health plays a vital role in the community. We are at a juncture that requires both the Board and senior leadership to take a deep and introspective look at where we are – and who we are – to ensure we have the right leaders in place to continue to fulfill our important mission. We are working closely with the leadership team to begin the healing process and create a stronger, more inclusive culture that reflects our shared values and priorities.

In the short term, we are working to identify an interim CEO and will provide updates as they become available. We will also conduct a robust search for a permanent CEO, who will be a steward of our mission over the long term, and are continuing our search for a Chief People & Culture Officer as a top priority

As we progress along these paths, you can expect to hear from me as well as the senior leadership team.


Sam Rinehart, Chairman of the Board, Equitas Health
