Hyde to retire from Providence Milwaukie
After a career with Providence Health & Services that spans nearly four decades, Keith Hyde, chief executive, Providence Milwaukie Hospital, will be retiring in January 2018. Hyde's journey in health care and through Providence exemplifies his depth of experience and commitment to those in need.
He began his career as a dishwasher/dietary aide and went on to hold positions as a pediatric orderly, respiratory therapist at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center, cardio-respiratory services director at Holladay Park Hospital, chief respiratory therapist/respiratory care director at Providence Portland Medical Center, respiratory care and neurodiagnostic services regional director, Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives, and finally as chief operating officer and chief executive at Providence Milwaukie Hospital.
"Keith is truly a Person of Providence. It is evident as he grew in responsibilities and service over the decades, and in what he leaves behind," says Paul Gaden, chief executive, Providence - Oregon Eastern Division. "Keith navigated Providence Milwaukie through difficult economic times while establishing the dental clinic, the Providence Community Teaching Kitchen and senior psychiatric services at PMH. Those accomplishments all speak to his commitment to our Mission of serving the poor and vulnerable."
The search for a new chief executive is in process with the goal of the new executive working alongside Hyde to ensure a smooth transition.
