DALLAS--()--Tenet Healthcare (NYSE: THC) named Tim Adams as senior vice president of operations and integration. In this new role, Adams will oversee the assimilation of new acquisitions and joint ventures into Tenet’s system, serving as the liaison between new operations, the company’s acquisitions and development team, corporate functional leaders and regional and market management.

“Expanding our hospital operations through acquisitions and partnerships is a key component of Tenet’s growth strategy, and integrating new hospitals into our system is an important and complex process,” said Britt Reynolds, president of hospital operations at Tenet. “Tim’s extensive operational experience and strong network of relationships across our organization make him the ideal candidate to ensure new acquisitions and ventures are smoothly integrated into our company.”

Adams joined Tenet in May 2012 and most recently served as chief executive officer of the company’s Central Region, overseeing 15 hospitals and more than 50 outpatient facilities.

In addition, Tenet named Eric Evans as chief executive officer of Tenet’s newly created Texas Region, which consists of 23 hospitals and more than 80 outpatient facilities. Evans has served since 2012 as CEO of Tenet’s Sierra Providence Health Network (SPHN) in El Paso, where he oversaw numerous strategic initiatives, including the development of plans for a new teaching hospital in collaboration with Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.

“Tenet has a very large presence in Texas, including in key markets such as Dallas, San Antonio, Houston, El Paso and the Rio Grande Valley,” Reynolds said. “Establishing a Texas Region led by a talented and accomplished executive will enhance strategic alignment across some of our largest markets.”
