Thomasville (Ala.) Regional Medical Center has named Quentin Whitwell its next CEO, CBS affiliate WKRG reported March 28. By the end of his tenure, he could be its owner. 

Mr. Whitwell is a rural healthcare operator and attorney, according to a release obtained by the news station. He currently serves as CEO of Progressive Health Systems — an Oxford, Miss.-based hospital management group — and a founding partner of law and advisory firm Musgrove Whitwell, PLLC.
