Florida health system adds to C-suite, reshuffles hospital CEOs

Hollywood, Fla.-based Memorial Healthcare System has moved several leaders into new roles within the organization. 

Two leaders were named to C-suite positions while three were given new roles at hospital helms.

"These strategic appointments reflect Memorial's commitment to promoting talent that help facilitate its continuing excellence in the delivery of care while also reflecting the diversity of its workforce and community," the health system said in a Dec. 6 news release shared with Becker's
