HC-One boss leaves provider

Justin Hutchens

HC-One chief executive officer Justin Hutchens has left the provider, it has been announced.

A statement said he has decided to return to the US to take up new opportunities closer to home in a post in healthcare-related finance and investment. It is also believed he wanted to be closer to his family.

As a result, HC-One has reorganised its senior team to ensure continuity to deliver its business plan.

With immediate effect Sir David Behan will become executive chairman.

John Ransford will move to the role of interim chief operating officer and David Smith, chief financial officer, whilst retaining his existing responsibilities will assume additional operational responsibilities.

Hutchens was due to take part in panel discussion at LaingBuisson’s Investing in Healthcare conference today (Thursday 6 February) but cancelled at the last minute.
