Adventist Health System has named a new regional CEO to lead what was formerly known as the Florida Hospital East Florida Region.
"The recent passing of our friend and colleague, Rob Fulbright, has left a permanent void in our hearts that will never be filled. There were many plans and projects that Rob was pursuing and it is important that we honor him by prayerfully selecting an executive leader that will advance Rob's vision, as well as accelerate a seamless transition," said Terry Shaw, Adventist Health System President and CEO.
Effective May 1, Adventist Health System has appointed David Ottati, current CEO for Florida Hospital Waterman, to serve in a new role as President/CEO of the Central Florida Division - North Region.
Adventist Health System's Central Florida Division is now composed of two halves: North Region and South Region.
What was formerly the Florida Hospital East Florida Region will now be the Central Florida Division - North Region and will encompass Lake, Volusia and Flagler counties, as well as the strategic development of markets adjacent to and north of those areas. This now includes Florida Hospital DeLand in DeLand, Florida Hospital Fish Memorial in Orange City, Florida Hospital Flagler in Palm Coast, Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center in Daytona Beach, Florida Hospital Oceanside in Ormond Beach, Florida Hospital New Smyrna in New Smyrna Beach, and Florida Hospital Waterman in Tavares.
The Central Florida Division - South Region will include all Orlando-area Florida Hospital facilities. Ottati will report to Daryl Tol, President/CEO of both Adventist Health System's Central Florida Division, as well as the South Region.
The search for a new CEO at Florida Hospital Waterman is underway.
