Robert Blair, CEO of Baton Rouge-based The Spine Hospital of Louisiana, is stepping down after 12 years with the company, according to Greater Baton Rouge Business Report.
Under his tenure, The Spine Hospital's patient satisfaction became among the top 5 percent in the country, the May 25 report said. Mr. Blair plans to go into a "pseudo-retirement" and plans to do consulting work.
His successor has been chosen, but their identity was not revealed. Mr. Blair said he had a reputation for helping struggling hospitals. However, he stayed with The Spine Hospital because it "felt like home," he told the Business Report.
