It has been a state of transition for leadership at the CHRISTUS St. Vincent Regional Medical Center in Santa Fe recently.
Alex Valdez, President and Chief Executive Officer, was promoted to Vice President of International Advocacy for CHRISTUS Health.
Replacing Valdez will be Bruce Tassin, who has served as Chief Operations Officer at the medical center for the past five years. Tassin officially takes over Monday.
“We’re certainly going to miss Alex’s leadership,” said Lillian Montoya-Rael, chair of the medical center Board of Directors.
“Over the last nine years, Alex has led CHRISTUS St. Vincent and positioned the hospital for growth, leaving a strong legacy that is visible not only within the hospital, but one that reaches out, impacting the entire community. We recognize that his talents - his diplomacy in particular - are needed on a broader scale.”
Valdez, a native of Northern New Mexico, was appointed President and CEO in 2004. During his tenure, the hospital expanded into a regional medical center, and in 2008, Valdez helped facilitate the agreement with CHRISTUS Health to create a more sustainable organization.
“First and foremost, I have been incredibly blessed to have been CEO of such a wonderful organization over the last nine years,” Valdez said.
