Cooley Dickinson Hospital CEO Craig Melin is resigning from his post. In a surprise announcement Monday, Melin said he’ll stay on through the end of January. Melin says it will take five years for the hospital to transition to its full affiliation with Mass General. Since he doesn’t want to serve that long, he wants to clear the way for new leadership. Melin has been at the helm of the Northampton hospital for 25 years.
