MountainView Hospital Announces New Chief Executive Officer
MountainView Hospital is pleased to announce its new Chief Executive Officer, Chris Mowan, FACHE.
Mowan will assume the role as Chief Executive Officer (CEO), effective September 1. He joins MountainView from Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, where he has served as Chief Operating Officer (COO) for the past four years.
“Chris’ experience at Sunrise Hospital and in the Las Vegas healthcare market makes him a great fit at MountainView Hospital,” said Bryan R. Rogers, FACHE, President of HCA Far West Division. “As he continues to work within the Sunrise Health System, his leadership and knowledge will be valuable in continuing to advance the growth of healthcare services to our patients.”
As Chief Operating Officer for Sunrise Hospital, Mowan oversaw operations of many areas of the hospital and major service lines including the Nevada Neurosciences Institute, ancillary departments, and physician recruitment. Chris completed several major hospital expansions including a complete renovation of the adult medical surgical and ICU floors as well as the rehabilitation unit. Prior to joining Sunrise, Mowan worked at HCA’s Del Sol Medical Center in El Paso, Texas, in various roles including Chief Operating Officer. Mowan has been with HCA for more than 18 years.
Mowan received his bachelor’s degree in accounting from Indiana University in Indianapolis, Indiana, and a master’s degree in business from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. He is board-certified as a fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives.
“At its inception, MountainView established a patient-centric culture that values the delivery of the safest, most compassionate care possible,” Mowan said. “I look forward to joining the team and carrying on the tradition of recognizing our employees and in engaging physicians as our strategic partners.”
Mowan assumes the role of CEO at MountainView, following the promotion of MountainView CEO Will Wagnon, FACHE, to the position of Chief Executive Officer of Henrico, Parham, and Retreat Doctors’ Hospitals in Richmond, Virginia. Wagnon served as CEO of MountainView for five years and oversaw extensive renovations and expansions of the facility.
