Indianapolis—Community Health Network announced its president and chief executive officer Bryan Mills tested positive for the COVID-19 coronavirus.
Mills, who was symptomatic and subsequently tested, learned of his diagnosis over the weekend and informed Community’s 16,000 employees in an email Monday.
Mills is in quarantine but still actively involved in leading and planning Community’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. He continues to participate in meetings remotely, receive updates and lead key decision-making processes.
