Prior to that, he was COO of Mag­no­lia Re­gional Health Cen­ter, Corinth, Miss., for four years. … Tenet Health­care Corp., Dal­las, said it hired J. Michael Cowl­ing to be CEO of Palm Beach Gar­dens (Fla.) Med­i­cal Cen­ter. Cowl­ing, 58, has worked for two other in­vestor-owned hospi­tal chains. His most re­cent po­si­tion was as a divi­sion vice pres­i­dent with Health Man­age­ment As­so­ci­ates, Naples, Fla. In that role, he over­saw the op­er­a­tions of two hos­pi­tals. Cowl­ing also worked as a hospi­tal CEO with HMA. Prior to that, he was Chicago mar­ket pres­i­dent for Van­guard Health Sys­tems, Nashville. … Rhonda An­der­son was named CEO of Car­don Chil­dren’s Med­i­cal Cen­ter in Mesa, Ariz., ef­fec­tive im­me­di­ately.
