Spectrum Health Partners announced it would end its contract with the hospital district effective Sept. 14.
Spectrum announced its resignation during a special called meeting of the hospital board last week.
As of Aug. 15, the hospital district owes Spectrum $265,469 in fees, some due as far back as April, according to the letter of resignation from Spectrum President Ken Doran.
Rodger Klein, interim CEO who was hired as part of an agreement with Spectrum, continues to lead Westlake during the implementation of an expense reduction plan and is expected to continue until a 30-day notice period ends.
Hospital board chairman Jim Evans said Tuesday evening that hiring a CEO would be discussed during the board’s next regular meeting, scheduled for Tuesday night.
