Darian Harris to oversee 2 California Providence hospitals

Darian Harris has been tapped to oversee management of Providence's Healdsburg (Calif.) District Hospital and Petaluma (Calif.) Valley Hospital, the Renton, Wash.-based health system said May 3. 

Mr. Harris will serve as vice president of operations for both hospitals, which were bought in January by NorCal HealthConnect, a secular nonprofit affiliate of Providence. He replaces David Southerland, who stepped in this year as an interim vice president of operations. Mr. Southerland is now president and CEO of Regional Medical Center in Orangeburg, S.C.

"We are grateful to Mr. Southerland for his leadership over the last few months and wish him the very best in his new role," Frank Beirne, regional COO at Providence, Northern California, said in a news release. "As Darian joins the Providence network, we feel confident that the infrastructure is in place to enhance and strengthen our commitment to providing quality care as effectively and efficiently as possible to the communities we serve."

Previously, Mr. Harris was a director at Kaiser Permanente San Jose (Calif.), overseeing operational, fiscal and strategic aspects of the pediatrics, OB-GYN and regional clinical genetics service lines, Providence said. He also served as a director at Boston-based Massachusetts General Hospital, responsible for service lines and programs within the Massachusetts General Hospital/Southern New Hampshire Health System clinical affiliation portfolio.

Mr. Harris holds a master's degree in health administration from the University of Washington in Seattle.
