Former All Saints head resigns from Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare

Dr. Loren Meyer
A Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare executive who was removed as head of Racine's hospital in February resigned from the company, a spokesperson confirmed Monday.

Dr. Loren Meyer was reassigned as CEO of Wheaton Franciscan Medical Group after 50 doctors revolted and threatened to leave All Saints. Ken Buser took over for Meyer, who was transferred out of Wheaton's "South Region."

Meyer resigned after Wheaton Franciscan completed a reorganization of its Milwaukee, said Spokesperson Anne Ballentine.

Meyer joined Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare in 1986 and served in a variety of roles including Vice President of Quality and Medical Education, Chief Quality Officer and Vice President of Medical Group Operations. Meyer received his medical degree from West Virginia University and completed his pediatric residency at Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, Illinois.
