Parkridge Health System has named Will Windham as the new CEO of Parkridge East Hospital.
Windham most recently served as chief executive of HCA's LewisGale Hospital Alleghany in Low Moor, Virginia for nearly four years and previously, he was also chief operating officer at HCA's Medical Center in McKinney, Texas and an associate chief operating officer for HCA's Centennial Medical Center in Nashville.
"Will has an exceptional track record for catalyzing service line growth that makes him a perfect fit for Parkridge East," said Tom Ozburn, president and CEO of Parkridge Health. "The strong leadership skills he has demonstrated throughout his career will be integral to operationalizing our plans for expansion at Parkridge East. We couldn't be more pleased to welcome him to the Parkridge Health family."
Ozburn said Windham has served in progressive leadership roles since 2006 across Parkridge Health parent company HCA Healthcare and said Windham "is poised to make an immediate impact on Parkridge East, spurring the hospital's growth initiatives – notably an expansion of The Birth Place that is currently underway."
Windham fills the vacancy created when former Parkridge East Ridge President Jarrett Millsaps was named last August as CEO of Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky.
Windham earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and a Master of Hospital and Health Administration degree from Virginia Commonwealth University, in Richmond, Virginia.
Windham and his wife, Lauren, have two children and recently relocated to the Chattanooga area.
Part of the Parkridge Health System Family of Hospitals, the 128-bed Parkridge East Hospital in East Ridge provides a full range of medical and surgical services, such as orthopedics and robotic surgery
