Peter Murphy, vice president and chief operating officer of Franciscan Health Mooresville and Franciscan Health Carmel, has retired after 26 years of dedicated service. Joining Franciscan in 1990, he served at St. James Health in Chicago Heights as executive vice president/chief operating officer and then as divisional president and CEO until 2008. He relocated to central Indiana in 2013 and has served in his current role since that time, overseeing operations at Franciscan Health Mooresville and Carmel hospitals.
During his tenure, Franciscan Health Mooresville has been the recipient of many awards and honors. The hospital has continually rated as tops in the state, and among the highest in the nation, for joint replacement. Franciscan Health Mooresville repeatedly earns high marks for patient safety and patient satisfaction, as well as a five-star CMS rating. Franciscan Health Carmel also delivers leading ratings for patient quality and experience.
Additionally, during this time, Murphy helped lead many growth and improvement initiatives at the Mooresville campus. This includes facility infrastructure upgrades, remodeled and expanded areas, as well as a new medical office complex that’s currently under construction, which will greatly enhance Franciscan’s services for the community.
Murphy credits the accomplishments to the dedication and team effort displayed by staff and providers. He attributes any success he has achieved as an administrator to the Franciscan mission that has guided his decisions and leadership style.
In retirement, Murphy plans to stay busy traveling between St. Louis and Mexico and spending more time with family and friends.
