has been pro­moted to se­nior VP of oper­a­tions strat­egy and in­te­gra­tion at Brent­wood, Tenn.-based LifePoint Health.

In the newly cre­ated po­si­tion, Waddey, 40, will over­see ser­vice line de­vel­op­ment, pop­u­la­tion health, en­ter­prise pro­ject man­age­ment and care in­te­gra­tion across the for-profit com­pany.

Most re­cently, Waddey was chief of staff to Bill Car­pen­ter, the com­pany’s chair­man and CEO. She also served as VP of the com­pany’s strate­gic re­source group, where she led healthcare re­form projects and worked to im­prove ef­fi­ciency across ser­vice lines.

Dr. Richard Slavin has an­nounced that he will re­tire as CEO of the Palo Alto Med­i­cal Foun­da­tion and Camino Med­i­cal Group, both part of Sut­ter Health, based in Sacra­mento, Calif.

As a lead­ing player in the merg­ing of Camino and the PAMF in 2000, Slavin— a gen­eral, tho­racic and vas­cu­lar sur­geon—helped cre­ate one of the largest mul­ti­spe­cialty group prac­tices in Cal­i­for­nia.

Den­holm will over­see Trin­ity’s home health and hos­pice oper­a­tions, which in­clude nearly 120 con­tin­u­ing-care fa­cil­i­ties and pro­grams that to­tal close to 2.8 mil­lion vis­its an­nu­ally.

Pre­vi­ously, Den­holm was CEO of home-care ser­vices and se­nior liv­ing com­mu­ni­ties at Cen­tura Health, Den­ver.
