Nick Ragone, who has served as the director of Ketchum‘s DC office since 2011, announced today that he’s leaving the firm for a role at Ascension Health, a St. Louis-based nonprofit healthcare organization associated with the Catholic Church.

Ragone described his new role as “overseeing the entire communications team structure–internal and external–for Ascension and all of its properties”, which include a family of hospitals and related facilities across the country.

While this PR Week post covers most of the details, Ragone did have a unique insight for us:

“I just want to reassure everyone: I’m an outspoken Mets fan and I will remain so–even in St. Louis.”
