ASHEVILLE After less than a year on the job, Dogwood Health Trust CEO Antony Chiang is leaving.

“Basically, Antony is going to be stepping down,” Board Member John Ball said Sept. 23. “Antony and the board agreed he brought real creativity to the early phases of starting up, but now we need to focus on building relationships and implementing the policy, so it was a mutual decision.”

The board is already working toward hiring an interim CEO, and Ball said that person should be in place by the end of October.

Dogwood Health Trust is the foundation formed from the $1.5 billion sale in 2018 of Mission Health to HCA Healthcare, based in Nashville, Tennessee.
