Tenet Healthcare Corp., Santa Barbara, Calif., said Edward Kangas, former chairman and CEO of the accounting firm Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, will join Tenet's board as an independent director. Kangas, 58, headed the accounting firm and one of its predecessor firms from 1989 to 2000. He is the first of what Tenet says will be four new independent directors on its 11-member board. By the company's annual meeting later this year, those new directors will replace the four longest-serving members of Tenet's board, including Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Barbakow, Tenet said. Barbakow will step down from the board but remain CEO. -- by Vince Galloro
