Today, REHAB Hospital of the Pacific announced that Dr. Timothy Roe, the longest serving CEO in REHAB history, will be retiring in the fall of 2021. Dr. Roe started at REHAB in 2001 and has been its President and CEO for the past 10 years. The REHAB Board of Directors has started a nationwide search to find a new CEO while Dr. Roe remains onboard to assist with the transition.

In remarks to staff Dr. Roe stated, “It has been an honor for me to devote a significant part of my life to helping REHAB and its patients. I am grateful to the staff, physicians, nurses, and board members who have helped build an organization so committed to the care of Hawaii’s community and I am confident that REHAB will continue to be a leader in rehabilitative care long into the future.” 

In a statement, REHAB Board Chair Glenn Sexton acknowledged Dr. Roe’s countless contributions and dedication to REHAB's mission of rebuilding the lives of those with physical and cognitive disabilities from injury or disease. “While we are sad to see Dr. Roe retire we are grateful for his time with us positioning REHAB for continued success and we wish him all the best in the future.” 

“We are fortunate to have had strong leadership to guide us throughout the years, especially over the past unprecedented year. Current leaders of our organization will allow us to continue to have the stability and guidance during the transition we need while we search for our next CEO,” said Sexton. 

Under Dr. Roe’s leadership, REHAB was often ranked amongst the top rehabilitation hospitals in the country and the hospital underwent a multi-year, facility wide renovation, updating patient and administrative areas, therapy equipment, and network infrastructure, positively impacting thousands of patients and Hawaii families.
