“We’ve been through a lot together and we’ve created and transformed this community into something different in a very positive way. And to the many community partners throughout my time in Erie, this is not goodbye — it’s transitioning into a different role,” said Gibbons.

Gibbons will continue to serve as a member of the UPMC Hamot board to stay close to the hospital and its staff.
