Dr. Will Jackson, president and CEO of Erlanger Health System, is one of four finalists in the CEO search for one of South Florida’s largest public hospitals.

In March, Memorial Healthcare System — a $2.3 billion health care network situated between Fort Lauderdale and Miami — interviewed a pool of candidates to replace outgoing CEO Aurelio Fernandez, who will retire at the end of April, according to a Wednesday announcement on the health system’s website.

According to Wednesday’s announcement, the three candidates that remain in addition to Jackson are: Jonathan W. Curtright, CEO, University of Missouri Health Care; Edward Jimenez, CEO, University of Florida Health; and K. Scott Wester, president and CEO, Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center.

Erlanger officials declined to comment for this story.
