Springfield, MA, August 1, 2023
Today, Congressman Richard E. Neal released the following statement after the announcement that Dr. Mark Keroack, President and CEO of Baystate Health, will be retiring effective July 1, 2024.
“I have great admiration for Dr. Keroack and the work he has done in serving the Pioneer Valley for more than a decade. His roots in the City of Springfield run deep, just as they do in the medical community. Growing up in a household where his mother was a nurse and his father a doctor, Dr. Keroack has always had a profound sense of service. His partnership during his time as President and CEO over the past nine years, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, has been irreplaceable. He is a true advocate for the Greater Springfield community, and he is a true believer in facts, always following the science to achieve the best possible outcome for his patients. This, along with his measured approach and good-hearted nature, has earned him the respect of his colleagues in the medical community and those of us who have been fortunate enough to work with him over the course of his distinguished career. I wish him a long, happy, and healthy retirement, and thank him for his many years of dedicated service. Congratulations from the United States of America.”
