“After considering several qualified candidates, we’re confident in Dr. Marcotte’s talents and excited for what he will bring to the position,” said Seth Warren, Riverview Health President and CEO. “Dr. Paris will help transition Dr. Marcotte during the next few months to ensure a seamless changeover.”

“I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunities and challenges I’ve had here, and it has been an honor and a pleasure to serve three CEOs and the Board of Trustees,” Dr. Paris said. “I thank my administrative colleagues, the medical staff and all the people who have worked so hard to support me. Without them, I could not have been successful. Dr. Marcotte will be an outstanding addition to the team. He is a fine physician and an equally fine gentleman. I wish him all the best in a difficult job.”
