The retirement of Randall G. “Randy” Nyp, chief executive officer for the Prime Healthcare Kansas City market, was announced recently.
Providence Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas, is part of the Prime Healthcare Kansas City market, along with Saint John Hospital, Leavenworth; St. Joseph Medical Center, Kansas City, Mo.; and St. Mary’s Medical Center, Blue Springs, Mo.
Nyp has more than 45 years of health care experience with 30 years in executive leadership roles. Over the years, his strategy has been to implement strategic plans to improve organizational productivity and deepen relationships within the communities he serves.
His career spans from his start at St. Francis Hospital in Topeka to chief financial officer of St. Joseph Hospital in Denver, Colorado, before becoming president and CEO of Via Christi Regional Medical Center in Wichita. In 2005, Nyp moved across country to accept the role of senior vice president and chief operating officer at the Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System in Spartanburg, South Carolina. He returned home to his Kansas roots in 2011 to assume leadership for Providence and Saint John and assumed his leadership position with St. Joseph and St. Mary in the fall of 2016.
“After 45 years in healthcare, I have decided it is time to slow life down a bit,” Nyp said. “My wife, Susie and I have been blessed with our 13 grandchildren. We would like to spend more time with all of them and take time to travel together.”
Karen Orr, RN., MSN, MBA has been named administrator at Providence Medical Center. The other Kansas City Prime Healthcare hospitals will continue to be led by Jodi Fincher, administrator (St. Joseph Medical Center); Deb Ohnoutka, CEO (St. Mary’s Medical Center); and Paula Ellis, CNO administer (Saint John Hospital).
