Russ Harrington retires from Baptist Health after 40 years

HarringtonLITTLE ROCK – Russ Harrington retired as Baptist Health’s president and CEO July 1 after serving with the organization for four decades. 

To honor Harrington’s service, Baptist Health’s board of directors have renamed the hospital’s Little Rock campus the Russell D. Harrington Jr. Campus. 

“It has been an honor to be a part of this healing ministry and be able to serve the health care needs of our state for 40 years,” Harrington said in a post on Baptist Health’s blog. “I am proud of the success we have been able to achieve as an organization and consider it a privilege to have had the opportunity to work with so many skilled physicians, dedicated caregivers and committed staff.”

Troy Wells, formerly senior vice president of administrative services for Baptist Health, was named president and CEO by the organization’s board of trustees following Harrington’s retirement. Harrington has transitioned to the position of president emeritus and senior advisor.
