OHA Mourns Loss of Former President, CEO

OHA is sorry to share the news that Jim Castle passed away Jan. 7. For those who didn’t know Jim, he served as OHA’s president and CEO for 23 years until his retirement in 2011. Jim was admired by the hospital community in Ohio and across the country for his contributions and was well respected by the OHA staff who worked under his leadership.

Before joining OHA, Jim served as president of the Maine Hospital Association for four years and worked for 15 years with the Michigan Hospital Association. One of the OHA Health Care Leadership awards is named in Jim's honor. A memorial service for Jim will be conducted in Greenville, S.C. on Jan 22. OHA will share details of any Ohio services as they become available. Please keep Cathy and the Castle family in your thoughts and prayers. Read the public obituary here.
