Erlanger hospital has released the names of the three finalists for the hospital's president and CEO position.

The finalists are Rear Adm. Donald R. Gintzig, senior healthcare executive with the United States Navy; Ken D. Haynes, CEO with responsibility for St. Joseph Hospital, St. Joseph East Hospital and St. Joseph Jessamine, based in Lexington, Ky. from 2008 to mid-2012; and Kevin M. Spiegel, who currently serves as CEO at Methodist University Hospital in Memphis, Tenn.

The announcement comes over a year after former president and CEO Jim Brexler resigned. Since then, Charlsetta Woodward-Thompson has served as interim CEO. She interviewed for the position but did not make the cut in the search committee's short list.
