Dallas-based Tenet Healthcare Corp. has named Warren Kirk as CEO of its California’s Central Valley Market. The position was created in order for Tenet to expand its coverage outside of the South and manage the growing Central Valley region in California.
In his new role, Kirk will oversee a three-hospital network in the Northern San Joaquin Valley. The hospitals are Doctors of Modesto, Emanuel Medical Center of Turlock, and Doctors Hospital of Manteca.
Jeffrey Koury, a regional executive for Tenet, says Central Valley is an important market for Tenet, and believes Kirk is an excellent candidate for the position given his previous experience as CEO of Doctors of Modesto.
“[Kirk] is a highly experienced and accomplished hospital executive who understands the specific health care needs of the Central Valley,” Koury said in a statement.
