Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE: THC) today announced three executive appointments supporting home office and regional operations. As part of these changes, Molly O’Neill, 49, has been named senior vice president of business development; John Holland, 56, will become senior vice president of the company’s hospital operations; and Michael Graue, 57, will succeed Holland as senior vice president of operations for the Southern States region. All three positions will report directly to Britt T. Reynolds, president of hospital operations.
As senior vice president of business development, O’Neill will oversee marketing, volume building and service line growth, as well as other business development activities within the company. She joins Tenet with more than 25 years of experience in healthcare marketing and consulting, and most recently served as senior vice president and chief strategy and business development officer for Ascension Health Care Network. Before that, she served as vice chancellor for integrated planning and chief strategic planning and marketing officer at Duke Medicine in Durham, N.C.
“Molly is a seasoned executive with a keen understanding of the business opportunities and challenges that healthcare providers face,” Reynolds said. “I’m confident she will be a major asset as we continually strive to increase our volume growth and identify innovative approaches to better meet the healthcare needs of patients and families in the communities we serve.”
Holland will be taking on the new role of senior vice president of hospital operations, playing an integral role in Tenet’s acquisition and development activities to strengthen the company’s position in existing markets and create and expand on opportunities for future growth. He has been with Tenet, or one of its predecessor companies, since 1983 and spent the past seven years serving as regional senior vice president for the company’s Southern States region. Additionally, Graue, a seasoned healthcare executive with more than 30 years of experience, will be joining Tenet as regional senior vice president of the Southern States. In this role, he will oversee all strategic, operational and clinical activities for the region’s 12 acute care hospitals and related healthcare services. Prior to this role, Graue most recently served as executive vice president and chief operating officer at WellStar Health System in Marietta, Ga. Previously, Graue served in a variety of senior leadership roles at leading healthcare companies, including chief executive officer and market president.
