Dignity Health Appoints Laurie Harting as Senior Vice President of Operations for the Greater Sacramento Area, Effective July 14, 2014

Dignity Health has appointed Laurie Harting to the position of senior vice president of operations for the greater Sacramento area, effective July 14, 2014. Harting replaces Michael Taylor, who left last fall for a new post at McLaren Health Care. Sister Bridget McCarthy has been running things on an interim basis. Harting is currently senior vice president of operations for Dignity Health's western service area in Southern California, but she's been with the health system for 15 years. With the move to Sacramento, Harting will be responsible for six hospitals instead of three. She currently oversees Northridge Hospital Medical Center, St. John's Regional Medical Center in Oxnard and St. John's Pleasant Valley Hospital in Camarillo. In her new role, Harting will oversee Mercy General Hospital in Sacramento, Mercy San Juan Medical Center in Carmichael, Methodist Hospital in south Sacramento, Mercy Hospital of Folsom, Woodland Memorial Hospital and Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital in Grass Valley. She will be involved in system goal setting, planning and decision making, and also will be responsible for developing strategy and achieving results in the Sacramento region. Although Taylor was responsible for four hospitals in San Joaquin Valley, Dignity Health service areas has been altered slightly with the Harting hire and her job will be focused on the greater Sacramento region. She has a total of 30 years of experience in health care leadership, including hospital operations, program development, strategic planning and joint ventures for ambulatory centers.
