Medical City Healthcare has named Zach Mueller as its new chief nursing executive. He will replace Carol Gregory, who is retiring this month.
In his new role, Mueller will oversee the nursing practice, education, informatics, research, and operations for nurses at 13 Medical City Healthcare hospitals in North Texas.
Mueller previously served as senior vice president and chief nursing executive at Medical City Dallas and Medical City Children’s Hospital. He has more than 17 years of healthcare experience, working in a variety of roles including director of education, pediatrics, and cardiovascular services.
Erol Akdamar, president of Medical City Healthcare, says Mueller’s experience in nursing leadership, operations management, and collaboration with nurses and physicians across a complex array of specialties is ideally matched to the CNE position.
“I’m confident that his compassion and ability to inspire an exceptional experience for patients and families will help lead Medical City Healthcare to the next level of excellence,” Akdamar said in a statement.
Mueller earned his bachelor’s degree in Spanish and literature at the University of Colorado Boulder and his doctoral degrees in nursing practice and nursing from the University of Colorado.
