United Medical Center Interim CEO to retire

United Medical Center Interim CEO Andrew L. Davis will retire from his position effective July 15, according to the Washington D.C. hospital.

Mr. Davis will be replaced by Luis Hernandez, a member of the senior management team at Veritas of Washington, a consulting firm hired by UMC board of directors in early 2016.

Mr. Hernandez has over 30 years of senior management experience as a healthcare administrator and has served at various hospitals in Atlanta, Queens, N.Y., and Mexico City. 

Chris Gardiner, chairman of the board for UMC, commended Mr. Davis on his commitment to providing quality care to the community.

"Mr. Davis provided strong leadership during his tenure," said Mr. Gardiner. "He worked very closely with UMC's Medical Staff and was committed to informing local community leaders and civic organizations about the hospital to help broaden their understanding of the high quality healthcare services provided at the hospital for people who live in Ward 7, Ward 8, and southern Prince George's County."
