Henry’s statement reads as follows:

“The decision announced today by Community Health Systems to remove Brian Bauer as CEO of Lutheran Health Network is concerning to me.

Brian is a respected and valuable member of our community.

I consider Brian a friend and have been impressed by his leadership and commitment to Lutheran, Fort Wayne and the region.

Last month, I had a telephone conversation with leaders from Community Health Systems to see what needed to occur for a positive resolution to be reached between them and the local hospital network. As part of that discussion, I offered to host an in-person meeting with Community Health Systems, local hospital leadership and myself. My office has yet to receive a response to that offer.

I wish Brian the best in his future endeavors and encourage Community Health Systems to demonstrate a commitment to the future of the Lutheran Health Network.”
