Jonathan Nalli, the CEO of Porter Health System since 2007, will leave the hospital system to become the CEO at St. Vincent Health in Indianapolis.

At Porter, Nalli led the strategic and operational direction of two hospitals, six outpatient centers and an array of physician practices.

He oversaw construction of a 238-bed replacement regional hospital, developed a multispecialty physician group of primary care and surgical providers, managed revenue of $310 million, and led the hospital to its first recognition as a Best Place to Work from 2011-2013 by Northwest Indiana Business Quarterly.

“I am extremely proud of what we have achieved during these last six years,” Nalli said. “The outstanding medical staff and wonderful associates at Porter are absolutely committed to their patients and I truly believe Porter’s best clinical accomplishments are still ahead.”

Nalli will join the 22-hospital St. Vincent system, one of the largest employers that serves central and southern Indiana, beginning Feb. 1.

“As a proven health care executive with vast experience in growth management strategies, improvement plans and demonstrable results in achieving business objectives, we look forward to Jonathan leading the transformation of our business and building on the successes of our ministry,” said Vincent C. Caponi, executive chairman of the board for St. Vincent Health.

Dr. James Turk, chairman of the board for Porter Health Care System, thanked Nalli for his service.

“On behalf of the board, I would like to thank Jonathan for his dedication and commitment to Porter’s ongoing success,” Turk said.

Nalli earned his MBA from Drexel University in Philadelphia, and served as COO for Chestnut Hill Health System in Philadelphia for two years, and also served as COO of Pottstown Memorial Medical Center in Pottstown, Pa.
