Hanover to resign as Northeast Health CEO


Hanover, a native of Framingham, spent eight years as CEO of Health Alliance, a chain of hospitals in Ohio, before coming to Northeast Health System. He succeeded Stephen Laverty, who resigned after doctors and nurses took votes of no confidence in him.

Hanover immediately began searching for a partner for Northeast Health, saying the organization needed to expand in order to survive in the changing health care environment.

Northeast considered offers from for-profit companies Steward Health Care and Vanguard Health and from nonprofits Lahey Clinic and Beth Israel Deaconess before deciding to affiliate with Burlington-based Lahey.

In a press release, Grant called Hanover a “respected colleague and great friend.” He credited Hanover with recognizing the opportunity for Northeast and Lahey to combine forces.

“Ken’s leadership and foresight were instrumental in the successful establishment of the Lahey Health System,” Grant said.

Hanover said he will take time off to figure out what he wants to do next.
