Dr. Holman has more than 15 years of healthcare leadership experience in academic centers, managed care, corporate and community hospital settings. He joins LifePoint from Cogent HMG, a national hospital medicine management company, where he served in executive leadership roles for the past eight years, most recently as chief clinical officer.
