"We are fortunate to have uniquely talented and highly experienced healthcare professionals like Jan, Kim and Donna on our team," said Jeff Leland, CEO.

Ms. Diedrich's broad healthcare background includes stints as Regional Vice President with Surgical Health Corporation and the Ambulatory Surgery Division of HealthSouth Corporation.
