Robert G. Carmen, Adventist Health president and CEO since 2007, has announced his retirement. On April 1, 2014, Carmen will conclude his 44-year career with the health system which spans the states of California, Hawaii, Oregon and Washington. The Adventist Health board of directors regretfully accepted Carmen’s decision during regular meetings held this week and has initiated a process to select his successor. That decision is expected before the end of the year. An occupational therapist by training, Carmen’s four decades of service include stints as president of White Memorial Medical Center, Glendale Adventist Medical Center — both in California — and also Castle Medical Center in Kailua, Hawaii.
