Bon Secours St. Francis Health System announced that Matt Caldwell will be the new president of the health system’s Greenville market.
Caldwell, who has served as president of Mercy Health in the Springfield, Ohio market since 2016, will begin his new role on April 29.
In July 2018, Bon Secours Health System — the parent company of Bon Secours St. Francis — merged with Mercy Health to become Bon Secours Mercy Health.
Caldwell will oversee operations, quality, services and growth goals for the St. Francis Downtown and St. Francis Eastside hospitals and the health system’s medical campus, according to a hospital news release.
“Matt is an integrative and dynamic leader who will continue the ongoing journey to increase patient satisfaction,” said Mark Nantz, interim president, Atlantic Group, Bon Secours Mercy Health, in the news release. “He has the keen ability to identify and build upon local opportunities that support our commitment to expanding our healing ministry in Greenville and its surrounding communities.”
Caldwell brings a unique perspective to the healthcare industry. He began his career as a nurse working in critical care, post-operative care, recovery care and as a case manager.
“Bon Secours St. Francis is a leading, successful community health system focused on the highest quality patient care,” Caldwell said in the news release. “I am honored to take on this role and to work with our physicians and associates to serve the distinct needs of our patients across Greenville.”
Prior to joining Bon Secours Mercy Health, Caldwell spent four years as the CEO of Tennova Healthcare, and prior to that, he was CEO of Dallas Regional Medical Center.
