BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The western New York hospital system, Kaleida Health, has announced the resignation of its president and chief executive, James Kaskie.

Kaskie also resigned Friday as chief of the Great Lakes Health System of Western New York.

Jody Lomeo, chief executive of Erie County Medical Center and vice chair of Great Lakes Health, has been named interim CEO of both systems.

The Buffalo News (https://bit.ly/Ly5sY4u ) reports the changes follow job restructurings at Kaleida Health because of declining patient numbers at its hospitals.

The newspaper said Kaleida had a debt of $304.5 million as of 2011 with annual revenues of $1.12 billion and expenses of $1.13 billion.

John Koelmel, chairman of the Kaleida board of directors, said during a news conference that Kaleida isn’t changing direction, only leadership.
