“I am honored to serve as the interim president and CEO of Riverview Health,” Jewell said. “I look forward to working together with the dedicated Riverview Health team to continue the remarkable work they are doing to redefine the health care experience by becoming the best place to work, practice medicine and receive care.”

Riverview Health officials said as president and CEO, Jewell will continue to advance the organization’s growth strategy. He will work closely with the hospital’s board of trustees and leadership team to further shape the future of healthcare in Hamilton County, officials said.

“We’re excited to welcome Keith to lead Riverview Health,” said Greg Murray, chairman of the Riverview Health Board of Trustees. “He brings a wealth of experience in healthcare and is committed to continuing the mission of providing high-quality care to our patients and our community.”
