William Caldwell is the new CEO of Wilson (N.C.) Medical Center, effective April 1.
Caldwell takes on the role at Wilson Medical after most recently serving as COO of LewisGale Medical Center in Salem, Va. He replaces Jerry Dooley, who has been serving as interim president and CEO since Rick Hudson retired from the post last month.
Hudson vacated the position following the completion of the joint venture transaction between Wilson Medical and Duke LifePoint Healthcare
on March 1. The deal calls for Duke LifePoint to inject a $120 million capital investment in Wilson Medical over the next decade, with Duke LifePoint owning 80% of the venture and the hospital and local community owning the remaining 20%.Follow Rachel Landen on Twitter: @MHrlanden
