Leonard E. Cantrell Jr. has resigned as president and chief executive officer of the Upper Chesapeake Health System, which operates Harford Memorial and Fallston General hospitals.

The resignation, which took effect Nov. 27, was announced Dec. 1.

A brief press release announcing the resignation said Mr. Cantrell's replacement would be named early next year.

Allan Acton, Upper Chesapeake's vice president for marketing, declined to comment on the resignation.

Frederick O. Mitchell, president of the board of directors of Upper Chesapeake, will be interim president.

Mr. Cantrell had been president of Upper Chesapeake since January 1987, shortly after the private, nonprofit organization took over Fallston General Hospital.

Before that, he had been chief executive officer of Harford Memorial Hospital in Havre de Grace.

The Upper Chesapeake Health System formed in 1984 as the parent organization of Harford Memorial Hospital and Upper Chesapeake Medical Services, which manages five health clinics Harford and Cecil counties.

As president of the system, Mr. Cantrell also was president of the two hospitals and sat on the board of directors.

Barbara Aselage, a senior vice president at Harford Memorial, will become that hospital's president.

Lyle Sheldon, a senior vice president at Fallston, will become its president.

Jeff Flick will become president of Upper Chesapeake Medical Services.
