LifePoint Hospitals, Brentwood, Tenn., has named Dr. Russell Holman chief medical officer, effective today.

Holman, 45, replaces Dr. Lanny Copeland, who was the first to hold the CMO position when it was created in 2007. Copeland, one of Modern Healthcare's Most Influential Physician Executives, announced last summer that he planned to retire.
