SAN MARCOS, TX – Jim Boyle has been appointed as the interim CEO for Central Texas Medical Center (CTMC). Boyle will officially begin responsibilities at the 178-bed facility on Monday, Sept. 20 and will remain in the senior leadership role until a permanent replacement is found.
Boyle is the president and CEO of Summit Leadership Solutions, a consulting firm that specializes in leadership development, board development and executive coaching for health care organizations , churches and boards of directors. Prior to starting his own firm, Boyle served as CEO of Porter Adventist Hospital in Denver, Colorado and Senior Vice President for Centura Health in Englewood, Colorado. He has a long history with Adventist Health System (AHS), the parent company of Central Texas Medical Center, including serving as President/CEO of Shawnee Mission Medical Center near Kansas City and in various leadership roles with Florida Hospital in Orlando.
"I am very pleased that Jim Boyle is coming to San Marcos to fill the interim CEO position at CTMC. I have known Jim for many years; he is a man of integrity. He is a very successful leader who is committed to the mission of extending the healing ministry of Jesus Christ,” said Ken Finch, president and CEO of AHS Southwest Region. “Jim is known for his leadership in achieving quality clinical care and physician relationships. It will be a great benefit for CTMC and the community to have someone with his experience, accomplishments and capabilities as we search for the next CEO," added Finch.
Gary Jepson, the hospital’s former CEO, announced earlier this month his departure from CTMC after 9 years of service to pursue new opportunities. Since his arrival at CTMC in 2001, Jepson helped transform CTMC from a small, community hospital into a modern-day 178-bed medical center that is today providing a wide-range of complex healthcare services throughout the Central Texas region.
“The search for a permanent senior leader is already underway,” added Finch. “Our hope is
that we will have that individual selected by November.”
As part of AHS, CTMC brings a long tradition of Christian healthcare to San Marcos. Adventists opened their first health center in 1866 in Battle Creek, Michigan. AHS is a not-for-profit healthcare organization that emphasizes Christ at the center of care. Founded in 1973, AHS has quickly grown to become the largest not-for-profit Protestant healthcare provider in the nation. Today, AHS supports 43 hospitals and employs 55,000 individuals. AHS hospitals are comprised of 7,700 licensed beds, providing care for 4 million patients each year in inpatient, outpatient and emergency room visits.
