Texas Health Re­sources has pro­moted Bar­clay

Ber­dan to suc­ceed re­tir­ing long­time CEO Dou­glas Hawthorne. Ber­dan, 61, who joined Har­ris Methodist Health Sys­tem in 1986 as a VP and ad­min­is­tra­tor, will as­sume the role on Sept. 1. Har­ris Methodist joined Pres­by­te­rian Health­care Re­sources to form Ar­ling­ton-based Texas Health Re­sources in 1997. Hawthorne, who an­nounced in Jan­uary he planned to step down, has been THR’s CEO since its in­cep­tion.

The sys­tem cred­its Ber­dan with build­ing the or­ga­ni­za­tion into a North Texas mar­ket leader as pres­i­dent of Texas Health Har­ris Methodist Hos­pi­tal Fort Worth, and then in sev­eral sys­tem-level lead­er­ship roles be­fore be­com­ing COO in 2012.

CHE Trin­ity Health, Livo­nia, Mich., has named two ex­ec­u­tives to lead the sys­tem’s re­gional di­vi­sions.

Rick O’Con­nell, 61, is now ex­ec­u­tive VP of CHE Trin­ity’s East Group, over­see­ing hos­pi­tal op­er­a­tions in some of the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s largest mar­kets. Sally Jef­f­coat, 61, is ex­ec­u­tive VP of the West/Mid­west Group.

O’Con­nell pre­vi­ously was ex­ec­u­tive VP of the West/Mid­west Group. Jef­f­coat most re­cently was CEO of St. Alphon­sus Health Sys­tem, a CHE Trin­ity sys­tem in Boise, Idaho, and within the group she now over­sees.

CHE Trin­ity was formed last year through the merger of Catholic Health East and Trin­ity Health.

Dr. Henry Ting has been named se­nior VP and chief qual­ity of­fi­cer at New York-Pres­by­te­rian Hos­pi­tal in Man­hat­tan, one of the largest hos­pi­tals in the coun­try.

Ting, a car­di­ol­o­gist, di­rects New York-Pres­by­te­rian’s clin­i­cal-qual­ity and pa­tient-safety ini­tia­tives. He pre­vi­ously was as­so­ciate dean of the Mayo Clinic Col­lege of Medicine, Rochester, Minn., and also di­rected the Mayo Clinic Qual­ity Academy, which pro­vides qual­ity-im­prove­ment ed­u­ca­tion to all Mayo clin­i­cians.

Ting re­placed Dr. Eliot Lazar, who died in Jan­uary.
