Central Carolina Hospital in Sanford Gets New CEO

Posted Updated

SANFORD, N.C. — Doug Doris, the interim chief executive officer at Central Carolina Hospital since July, will have the “interim” removed from his title as of Jan. 1.

Tenet Southern States, which operates the 137-bed hospital, said Monday that Doris, 55, would officially take the CEO post next week. He reports to John Holland, senior vice president, operations, of Tenet’s Southern States region. Tenet is based in Dallas, Texas.

“Doug is an experienced hospital executive who has demonstrated an exceptional hands-on and personally engaging leadership style, which has already had a positive impact on the physicians, employees and patients at Central Carolina Hospital,” Holland said in a statement. “Since Doug first joined the hospital as interim CEO, he has been committed to the hospital as if he were going to be there for years to come. We’re pleased to say that now that will be the case.”

Doris had worked as an executive at other Tenet hospitals for 19 years before taking the interim post at Central Carolina Hospital last summer. He earned a masters degree in business administration from Maryville University in Missouri.
