Children’s Hospital CEO steps down; Cites family reasons story image

EL PASO, Texas – El Paso Children’s Hospital CEO Ray Dziesinski has stepped down from his position, hospital officials confirmed.

Officials said Dziesinski will stay on for another 30 to 45 days and was initially hired on a six-month contract to help with the transition after the former CEO resigned.

Dziesinski was said to step down to take another position to be closer to his family.

As KFOX14 previously reported the Children’s Hospital owes University Medical Center tens of millions of dollars.

UMC CEO James Valenti previously told KFOX14 the hospital loses $27 million every year that the Children’s Hospital doesn’t pay back the loan.

UMC recently approved a budget that would create five furlough days and recently let go of dozens of employees.

The Children’s Hospital told UMC that they would not be able to pay the funds back in 2014 or 2015.

Dziesinski previously served at Children's Medical Center in Dallas as senior VP and CFO from 2007 to 2013 and more recently as their chief treasury officer.
