Texas Health Resources, Arlington, announced a 10-year plan for delivering care in north Texas that will include both a new organizational structure and a new physician organization called Texas Health Resources Medical Group.
As part of the revamping, the system has created two new positions with the same title: senior executive vice president for system alignment and performance. Effective June 1, Barclay Berdan, president of 558-bed Harris Methodist Fort Worth Hospital, and Stephen Hanson, executive vice president of operations at the system, will serve in those new roles.
Oscar Amparan, currently president of 369-bed Arlington (Texas) Memorial Hospital, has been named to succeed Berdan at Harris, while Hansons current position at Texas Health will be eliminated, the system said in a new release.
Doug Hawthorne, chief executive officer of the consolidated system of faith-based, not-for-profit hospitals, said in a separate news release that details about the new physician group will be announced in the coming weeks.
The system said it will give Chief Financial Officer Ron Long the title of executive vice president of resource development and deployment to reflect his responsibility for strategic resource management.
In addition, Texas Health plans to begin a candidate search for a senior vice president and chief nursing executive, another new position created in the plan. The system controls 13 affiliated hospitals and a medical research organization, and is a corporate member or partner in seven additional hospitals and surgery centers. The systems hospitals include Harris Methodist Hospitals, Arlington Memorial Hospital and Presbyterian Healthcare System. -- by Jessica Zigmond
