The Dallas Morning News, October 17, 2013
After nearly two years without a permanent CEO, Parkland Memorial Hospital's Board of Managers announced Wednesday that it has resumed the search for a permanent CEO. The Dallas County hospital suspended the search in March until it had successful completed a make-or-break survey by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. It passed the inspection last summer. "At the time we suspended our CEO search, the Board knew we had a good turnaround team in place to steer Parkland through the impending CMS survey," said Debbie Branson, who chairs the hospital board. "That survey was crucial to the entire healthcare community in North Texas and it required our full attention," she said. "The time is right to turn our attention back to the CEO search."
