HONOLULU (AP) — The president and CEO of Hawaii's largest hospital system has announced he is retiring in January 2020 after nearly 30 years on the job.

Art Ushijima said in a Wednesday statement that he is looking forward to spending time travelling with his wife Ruth after he retires from The Queen's Health Systems.

The 70-year-old says his most rewarding achievement has been working alongside the system's top health care professionals to advance their shared vision for the state.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the Queen's board of trustees has established a search committee and brought on talent consulting firm Korn Ferry to begin the process to select the next CEO.
