BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. (AP) — Thomas K. Steiner has joined Hancock Medical Center as its new chief executive officer.
Steiner was formally introduced to hospital staff members on Monday.
Steiner, an Alabama native, told The Sun Herald (http://bit.ly/OBMcKd ) he was "ecstatic" when he got the call asking him to join the Hancock Medical community.
Passing the torch to Steiner was Polly Davenport, CEO of Ochsner Medical Center-North Shore.
Ochsner Health System announced an interim management agreement with Hancock Medical in September, and a two-year extension was signed in February. This is the organization's first management operation in Mississippi.
