Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Denton’s president is stepping down after more than a dozen years in its top role, The Denton Record-Chronicle reports.

Stan Morton took over in the spring of 2003 and notified Texas Health Resources officials of his decision to resign a few months ago. Employees and the hospital board found out Monday in what the newspaper describes as a “cascade of emails.”

Morton was the top executive through two parent companies, leading the hospital while it was owned by Community Health Systems and shepherding it after Texas Health scooped it up in 2009. He was also CEO through the opening of a new facility along North Interstate 35E.

THR officials have not announced a succession plan, but Morton told the daily that he’s been involved in its planning. Typically, Texas Health replaces the exiting president with an interim leader before finding a permanent replacement. Sometimes, the interim is that person, as was the case of Jim Berg, the president of Presbyterian Dallas.

Morton’s last day will be December 31.
