MONROE — Renee Jensen, chief administrative officer of EvergreenHealth Monroe and senior vice president of EvergreenHealth, is leaving her positions.
A spokesperson with EvergreenHealth did not provide details as to the nature of Jensen’s resignation.
She had been with the organization for two years, according to a news release.
Previously, Jensen served as CEO of Summit Pacific Medical Center in Elma for 10 years.
There, she took the organization from the brink of closure to a nationally recognized medical center, according to a 2017 Daily World article.
Lisa LaPlante, who has been with the organization for almost two decades, will serve as the interim executive leader and chief operating officer.
LaPlante joined EvergreenHealth Monroe in April 2010 to lead the quality division, according to the hospital’s website.
She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Care Services and a Masters in Healthcare Administration from the University of Phoenix. LaPlante has been working in health care since 1993, starting at a hospital-based home health agency in Moab, Utah.
In 2002, she took a position overseeing accreditation at Southwest Memorial Hospital in Cortez, Colorado. She also served as the Chief Quality and Compliance Officer there before moving to EvergreenHealth Monroe.
For many years, EvergreenHealth Monroe was called Valley General Hospital. Leaders in the public hospital district later decided to affiliate with the EvergreenHealth system, a public hospital district based just to the south in northeast King County. As part of its new affiliation, its name changed to EvergreenHealth Monroe in March 2015.
