Erie County Medical Center has appointed a veteran health care executive who has worked in Florida, Massachusetts, North Carolina and Washington, D.C., as its new chief operating officer.
Andrew L. Davis most recently served as interim chief executive officer at United Medical Center in Washington, a 354-bed acute care hospital and skilled nursing facility, and prior to that was president of Steward Carney Hospital in Massachusetts.
The resident of Braintree, Mass., was appointed to ECMC’s No. 2 job following a national search to replace Mary Laski Hoffman, who resigned last November.
Davis’ appointment is effective Sept. 6. A statement from the hospital did not include salary information.
Early in his career, Davis worked as a staff accountant and as a senior auditor for a CPA firm in Florida whose clients included health care facilities, nonprofits and assisted living facilities. He later worked in a number of financial management positions at health care centers, including as chief executive officer at Sandhills Regional Medical Center and at Davis Regional Medical Center, both located in North Carolina.
“He brings a depth and wealth of experience that will contribute significantly to our ongoing delivery of health care services, as well as play a key role in the development and execution of future activities throughout our system of care,” Sharon L. Hanson, chairwoman of ECMC’s board of directors, said in a statement.
