St. Joseph Health – Humboldt County welcomes new Chief Operating Officer

Eureka (Aug. 18, 2014) – St. Joseph Health – Humboldt County is pleased to welcome David Southerland, MHA, FACHE, as its new Chief Operating Officer (COO). David has more than 25 years of experience in for-profit and faith based non-profit sectors. We look forward to his background and expertise in ensuring we are able to continue our mission of extending the healing ministry of Jesus. With the many challenges and pressures we face in health care delivery and funding at the national, state and local levels, we believe David's extensive operational skills and knowledge are critical in guiding St. Joseph and Redwood Memorial Hospital Hospitals.

Most recently, David was the COO at a 141 bed community hospital in Southwest Virginia. He has also held the position of CEO and COO within the Baptist Health System in East Tennessee and the Battle Creek Health System, respectively, in Michigan.

With his exceptional fiscal, operational and relationship and management skills, we are excited to have David join our team and help us strengthen and position our ministries for continued success well into the foreseeable future.
