Adventist Health in the Central Valley has announced that Randy Dodd will be president of Tulare Regional Medical Center (TRMC). The position has been created to support the growth of Tulare and Adventist Health in the Central Valley region.
Dodd was previously vice president of business development and has been serving as the interim executive to re-open the hospital. He led the team through a rapid re-opening phase that included major renovations, equipment upgrades and the onboarding of more than 300 team members over the course of three months. The hospital re-opened on Oct. 15.
“Randy has had tremendous success in Tulare in a very short time,” said Andrea Kofl, president of Adventist Health in the Central Valley. “And a great deal of work remains ahead to establish our inpatient and outpatient services in this new market.”
Last week, the people of Tulare voted to pass Measure H, leasing TRMC to Adventist Health for the next 30 years. The resolution was passed with 88.1 percent of the vote.
“The recent amazing election results are a huge victory for the community of Tulare,” Kevin Northcraft, chair of the Tulare Local Healthcare District Board of Supervisors said. The hospital once divided our community, now it unites us!”
