Community Health Systems, Franklin, Tenn., said it has hired Thomas Miller as one of five division presidents.
Miller, 49, will oversee operations in Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. Miller was most recently president and chief executive officer of Lutheran Health Network, Fort Wayne, Ind., which was acquired Wednesday by Community when it completed its $6.8 billion acquisition of Triad Hospitals, Plano, Texas.
Miller is the highest-ranking Triad executive to join Community, the company said. Before his position in Fort Wayne, Miller worked for Nashville-based HCA as a CEO of several different markets. -- by Vince Galloro
