Penrose-St. Francis Health Services announced on March 7 that President and CEO Margaret Sabin will depart from her role effective March 16. Sabin intends to remain active in the local community pursuing her passion for population health management, Penrose-St. Francis said in a release.

Sabin was hired in 2008 and also served as president of Centura Health's South State Operating Group from 2009 to 2017. During Sabin's watch, Penrose-St. Francis was named one of eight hospitals in the country given HealthGrades' America's 50 Best Hospitals Award for 10 consecutive years. She also launched the largest health care Master Facilities Plan in southern Colorado. That includes expansion of St. Francis Medical Center at Woodmen Road and Powers Boulevard and building a new medical campus at Fillmore Street and Centennial Boulevard.

But her tenure had its hardships too: The Pueblo Chieftain reported on March 9 that Centura's St. Mary Corwin Medical Center in Pueblo announced it would lay off 300 workers, about 40 percent of the 800-member workforce, to remain economically viable.

Parent organization Centura Health will conduct a national search for Sabin's replacement.
