Medical City Healthcare has hired a new associate chief operating officer for its Medical City Fort Worth facility, after the ACOO there moved over to Medical City Dallas, also part of Medical City Healthcare.
Vernon Jones II will join Medical City Fort Worth on Jan. 22. He succeeds J.W. Newman, who joined Medical City Dallas as ACOO this month.
Jones comes to Fort Worth from the Houston area, where he was director of operations for CHI St. Luke’s Health Woodlands, Lakeside, and Springwood Village hospitals. Before that, he worked one year as director of ambulatory clinics and three years as manager of urology/ENT for HCA Healthcare’s Tulane Medical Center in New Orleans.
Newman joined Medical City Fort Worth in January 2016, serving as ACOO, co-ethics and compliance officer and co-chief staffing officer. Before that he was an administrative resident with Medical City Healthcare, serving in the division office in Las Colinas, at Medical City Dallas, Medical City Fort Worth, and Medical City Plano.
