Hospital Association President Gary Carter Announces Retirement
Date:9/12/2007

PRINCETON, N.J., Sept. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Gary S. Carter, president and CEO of the 118-member New Jersey Hospital Association, announced today that he'll retire next June. Carter has been at the helm of NJHA and its various affiliate organizations for the past 14 years. During that time he has built a solid reputation for his candor and ability to tackle and help resolve complex health policy issues.

Known as an innovator and consensus builder, the 63-year-old Carter strengthened NJHA's advocacy efforts in Trenton and Washington, D.C.; oversaw the launch of the NJHA Quality Institute; championed the public release of hospital cost and outcome data to consumers; and improved hospitals' relations with physicians.

"Gary Carter not only brought strength and stability to NJHA's membership, but he's served the state's entire healthcare community well with his ability to solve problems straight on," said NJHA Board Chairman Michael D'Agnes, president and CEO of Raritan Bay Medical Center. "Both as a professional and personally, I'll miss his good counsel. He's leaving behind a healthcare delivery landscape that he helped shape in many ways."

During his tenure, Carter led hospital and related healthcare providers by advocating for adequate Medicare, Medicaid and charity care funding; proposing changes in the state's health planning regulations; and strengthening relations with doctors and health insurers, particularly managed care companies. He has always remained focused on hospitals' ultimate customers -- the patients -- by supporting efforts to improve healthcare quality and patient safety and pushing hard to give consumers access to hospital clinical outcome data through the Internet.

Carter shared his healthcare views directly with the public through his monthly newspaper commentaries that have run in New Jersey's daily newspapers for more than a decade.

"It has been a privilege to serve our state's hospitals and help them care for the residents of New Jersey," said Carter. "But I'm also excited about this new course that my wife Susan and I are undertaking. While we have not formalized any specific plans other than to spend more time with our grandchildren -- none of whom live in New Jersey -- we are also looking forward to working together within our church."

Carter praised the New Jersey hospital leaders who help shape NJHA's work and the staff that carries it out.

"NJHA enjoys a rich tradition of excellent board leadership, and I have been blessed to work with such leaders over these 14 years, as well as to experience the support of our Board and membership," the Belle Mead resident said. "I also feel very blessed to have worked with the excellent NJHA staff. At every level we have people who have worked tirelessly for the good of all in the healthcare community."

Before coming to New Jersey in 1993, Carter was president of the New Hampshire Hospital Association for eight years. He has achieved Fellow status in the American College of Healthcare Executives. He continues to serve on various committees of the American Hospital Association and consults with the Joint Commission -- the nation's largest healthcare accrediting organization - - in its efforts to standardize clinical outcomes measures. He also is active in numerous church and community organizations.
