Methodist Hospital, Houston, has named Ronald Girotto, 60, as its president and CEO. Girotto, who has been acting president and CEO for the past year, formally replaces Peter Butler, who resigned in September 2001. Girotto previously retired from the four-hospital system in 1999 after serving as COO and CFO. He returned following Butler's departure. Methodist said Girotto will focus on maintaining good relationships with physicians. -- by Mary Chris Jaklevic
