Tenet Healthcare Corp., Dallas, named Phillip Sowa as the new chief executive officer at Tenet's 373-bed Park Plaza Hospital, Houston, effective immediately. Sowa, 58, is transferring from Tenet's 221-bed Meadowcrest Hospital, Gretna, La., where Chief Operating Officer Michael Beaver will act as interim CEO during a search for Sowa's successor. At Park Plaza, Sowa replaces Lex Guinn, who left Tenet to pursue other opportunities, the company said. Sowa worked as COO at Western Reserve Care System, Youngstown, Ohio, and Touro Infirmary, New Orleans, before joining Tenet. Earlier in his career, he worked for 10 years at three different Texas hospital systems. Tenet owns or operates 69 core hospitals and two hospitals held for sale. -- by Vince Galloro
