Sharon Roush, the Chief Executive Officer of South Bay Hospital in Sun City and the president of the Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce has resigned.

The veteran hospital executive has accepted a new position with Sarasota Memorial Hospital to build a new campus in the Venice area starting in July.

The decision ends a 27-year stint with HCA, South Bay's parent company. Roush spent 10 years as the CEO of South Bay and in 2016, she led the successful completion of the hospital's new patient tower project, expanding the hospital's critical care services and private patient rooms.

Dan Bender, the hospital's chief operating officer, will serve as interim CEO until a permanent replacement is appointed.

Roush already lives in Sarasota, and is known throughout Florida having led two other hospitals, Capital Regional Medical Center in Tallahassee and Columbia Hospital in West Palm Beach.

Her first priorities, according to a statement from Sarasota Memorial Hospital "will be overseeing the campus's pre-construction plans, including hosting community workshops and meeting with city officials. As the hospital takes shape, she also will focus on staffing and assembling a specialized medical staff and clinical team."

Roush served on the Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors for more than eight years.

"Sharon was a great asset to our board and our chamber," said Sierra Carch, administrative professional for the Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce.

"She'll definitely be missed."

The Chamber's President Elect Michelle Mosher, who is owner of Southshore Insurance Professional has been promoted to the title of President effective immediately and will serve as Chamber President for the remainder of the 2018 and 2019 year.
