Advocate Aurora Health, which has several operations in the New North, now has a single CEO. Jim Skogsbergh, who has led the health care provider alongside Nick Turkal since April 2018, will become Advocate Aurora Health’s sole president and CEO.

The health care system announced Turkal is leaving the organization, which is dually based in Downers Grove, Ill., and Milwaukee to “pursue other interests.”

Skogsbergh previously was Advocate Aurora Health’s CEO and president while Turkal led Aurora Health Care prior to the two merging last year to create the 10th largest nonprofit health care system in the country.

In the New North, Advocate Aurora Health has clinics in multiple communities and hospitals in Oshkosh, Manitowoc and Sheboygan. Aurora also partners with Baycare Clinics on a hospital in Green Bay. The health system is also building a new ambulatory care facility in Kaukauna.
