Dr. Cy Huffman resigned the post of chief medical officer of Erlanger Health System on Friday, according to interim CEO Charlesetta Woodard-Thompson.

"I plan to name an interim CMO in the next few days," Woodard-Thompson said in an email.

We feel well prepared to address Dr. Huffman's departure, and fortunate to have a number of talented individuals who can have a positive impact on quality and physician oversight."
