On October 27, 2017, Ronald A. Williams, then a member of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Envision Healthcare Corporation (the “Company”), notified the Company of his decision to resign from the Board and its compensation and nominating and corporate governance committees, effective immediately. Mr. Williams stated that he made his decision to resign from the Board in order to focus on his role as an Operating Advisor at a private equity firm.

Mr. Williams, a Class I director, had been elected to serve a term expiring at the Company’s 2020 annual meeting of stockholders.
