Tenet Healthcare Announces Executive Changes

Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE: THC) today announced that Gary K. Ruff, currently Tenet’s senior vice president and general counsel, has been named senior vice president, physician resources. In this new position, Ruff will oversee the operations of Tenet’s network of physician practices and other physician relationship strategies.

Also today, Tenet announced that Audrey Andrews, currently Tenet’s senior vice president and chief compliance officer, has been named senior vice president and general counsel. Andrews successfully managed the company’s completion of its obligations under the Corporate Integrity Agreement, which ended in September 2011. She has an extensive legal background in healthcare and a strong record of effective leadership at Tenet. Vanessa Benavides, who currently serves as Tenet’s corporate compliance officer, will succeed Andrews as vice president and chief compliance officer reporting directly to the quality, compliance and ethics committee of Tenet’s board of directors.

“Gary is a seasoned executive who has played an integral role in the development and implementation of our operational strategy for many years. His deep knowledge of our hospitals, markets and physician arrangements make him an ideal candidate to lead this critical organization,” said Trevor Fetter, Tenet’s president and chief executive officer. “Additionally, Audrey is an experienced attorney with extensive experience in diverse areas of healthcare and corporate law. Her strong relationships with our excellent team of internal and external attorneys, resulting from her previous service in the law department and from her work as chief compliance officer, will provide a seamless transition to her new position as general counsel.”

In his new role, Ruff, 53, will work to finalize the structure and strategic initiatives for the physician resources organization moving forward. He will report to Britt Reynolds, president of hospital operations. Ruff joined Tenet in 1992 as a hospital operations counsel supporting the company’s Gulf States Region and Tenet Physician Services, was promoted to vice president and assistant general counsel in 2004, and was named senior vice president and general counsel in 2008. Before joining Tenet, Ruff was a tax manager for Deloitte & Touche LLP where he specialized in corporate reorganizations and individual tax planning.
