TULARE – Adventist Health in the Central Valley announced that Randy Dodd has been named president of Tulare Regional Medical Center. The position was created to support the growth of Tulare and Adventist Health in the Central Valley region.
Dodd, who has 14 years of executive experience and is a fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives, was previously vice president of business development and had been serving as the interim executive to reopen the hospital. He led the team through a rapid reopening phase that included major renovations, equipment upgrades and the onboarding of more than 300 team members in just over three months.
