Medical City McKinney has named Andrew Nice as its new chief operating officer. He replaces Will Windham, who left for another position.

As COO, Nice will oversee Medical City McKinney’s day-to-day operations, business strategies, and company policies.

“Right now, [Medical City] McKinney is on a great trajectory in regards to patient experience and care,” Nice told D CEO Healthcare. “My plan is to sustain and grow that.”

Nice says he also plans to “grow the hospital’s physician relationships with their patients along with patient experience and employee engagement.”

According to Ernest C. Lynch, Medical City McKinney CEO, Nice brings a “range of experience leading expansion projects and ancillary departments.” Hailing from Tennessee, Nice most recently served as associate COO at TriStar Hendersonville Medical Center, a hospital owned by Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA Healthcare.

Nice earned his bachelor’s degree in biology and psychology from Augustana College in Rock Island, Ill. He also earned his master’s degree in health administration from the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa.
