Methodist Hospitals Announces National CEO Search - July 10, 2014

The Methodist Hospitals, Inc. Board of Directors voted to initiate a national search for a President and Chief Executive Officer to lead the organization in meeting the challenges and opportunities it will face in the coming years.

The first step in this search process will be to convene a multidisciplinary search committee, comprised of representatives of the board, our medical staff, and key representatives of the communities we serve and members of our leadership team. This committee’s initial responsibilities will be to develop parameters and criteria for the search and work with an executive search firm to recommend a slate of candidates from which the Methodist Hospitals Board of Directors will interview and select the new President and CEO. The search process is expected to take four to six months and will be a top priority of the Board during that time.

During the search process, Dr. Michael Davenport will continue in the role of President and Interim CEO. The Board of Directors has complete confidence in Dr. Davenport as he continues to lead the hospital during this time.
