It is with mixed emotions that I am writing to share the news that Mark Holyoak will be leaving Castleview Hospital to transition into a new role within the Duke LifePoint Healthcare system. He will be joining the Wilson Medical Center team in Wilson, NC, as their new CEO. His last day at Castleview will be September 7.

This is a significant move for Mark. He has been in LifePoint hospitals in Utah for two decades, and an integral part of Castleview for more than eight years. While we are happy to keep him within the larger LifePoint family, we are certainly sad to see him leave this region. He has contributed significantly to the health of this state and community.

At Castleview, the hospital reached new heights under Mark’s leadership. He led the recruitment of numerous physicians in order to strengthen the medical community in Price. He oversaw multiple, impactful operational improvements enhancing the way the hospital delivers care to the community. He invested time and energy into people, implementing leadership training and other talent development strategies across the organization. And with the support of the entire team, it was with Mark at the helm that Castleview was named a Duke LifePoint Quality Affiliate.

Mark’s good spirit and dedication to our mission of Making Communities Healthier will be hard to replace, but with the support of Castleview’s strong leadership team and board, we know we are up to the task. We have initiated a search for Mark’s successor and will share additional information as soon as there are updates to provide.

Please join me in thanking Mark for his service to Castleview Hospital and wishing him the best at Wilson Medical Center.
