Former Ty Cobb CEO Chuck Adams

Ty Cobb Healthcare System CEO Chuck Adams has tendered his resignation.

Adams has accepted the position of Executive Vice President of the Georgia Hospital Association.

Adams has served as chief executive officer of Ty Cobb Healthcare System in Royston, since June 2002 and was Georgia Hospital Association’s chairman in 2010.

In his new role, Adams will oversee the Georgia Hospital Association’s Professional Services and Education departments and will lead the Association’s Center for Rural Health.

“He is ideally suited for this position given his long-time tenure leading small/rural hospitals,” said GHA president Joe Parker. “With his vast experience in working with Georgia lawmakers, Chuck will also collaborate with GHA’s government relations staff to further strengthen GHA’s reputation and influence at the Capitol.”

Adams quietly made the announcement to Ty Cobb Healthcare staff late Tuesday afternoon, according to hospital spokesperson Paige Burton.

“He has asked not to be interviewed by the media,” Burton said Thursday after Adams was contacted for a comment on his departure. “He just wanted the announcement put on our Web site and doesn’t want to comment further.”

Adams will join the Georgia Hospital Association staff in early December. He replaces Executive Vice President Vi Naylor who is moving to another position within the Association. Naylor is now focusing her time leading GHA’s Hospital Engagement Network (HEN).
