Tampa General Hospital president and CEO Jim Burkhart abruptly resigned Tuesday, officials said.
The hospital released few details about Burkhart's resignation. His name and biography have been removed from the hospital's website.
Burkhart came to Tampa General nearly four years ago from Shands Jacksonville Medical Center where he was president and CEO.
“We appreciate all that Jim has done during his time here,” John Brabson, Tampa General’s board chairman, said in a release.
