Chuck Stokes, the president and CEO of Memorial Hermann Health System, will retire at the end of 2019. He began his career more than 40 years ago as an orderly in a Mississippi hospital. Soon after, he became a registered nurse.

“I have been fortunate to serve Memorial Hermann for more than 10 years and have had the distinct pleasure to work alongside some of the most talented and hard-working professionals in health care,” Stokes said in a statement released Wednesday. “It’s with profound gratitude that I prepare to embark on this new phase of my life with my wife, Judy, during which we plan to travel and spend more time with family.”

The Memorial Hermann Health System Board will conduct a national search for Stokes’ replacement, although internal candidates will also be considered.

Stokes assumed the leadership role at Memorial Hermann Health System in July 2017. One month later, he found himself preparing to help employees ride out Hurricane Harvey.
