HCA Houston Healthcare Northwest named Scott Davis as the hospital's new CEO in a March 4 press release.

Davis joins HCA Houston Healthcare Northwest after previously serving as CEO of San Antonio’s Methodist Texsan Hospital and Methodist Ambulatory Surgical Hospital, per the release. He will begin leading the hospital's team of more than 1,400 physicians, nurses, allied health professionals and support staff on April 8. The hospital is operated by HCA Houston Healthcare, the local division of HCA Healthcare Inc. (NYSE: HCA).

“For decades, HCA Houston Healthcare Northwest has been known for delivering exceptional, patient-focused care,” Davis said in the release from HCA. "I’m certainly looking forward to helping write the next chapters in the story of this amazing institution.”

During Davis' time with Methodist Texsan Hospital and Methodist Ambulatory Surgical Hospital in San Antonio, both hospitals earned patient experience scores in the top 10 percent nationally, per the release.

“Throughout his career, Scott has achieved remarkable success,” said Troy Villarreal, president of HCA Houston Healthcare, in the release. “The track records of his hospitals, particularly in the area of patient focused care, speaks volumes about his leadership.”

HCA Houston Healthcare Northwest has served the north Houston area since 1973, according to the release. In 2017, Nashville-based HCA Holdings Inc. purchased the hospital, formerly known as Houston Northwest Medical Center, and three other Houston-area hospitals in a deal that made HCA the largest health care system by bed count in Houston. HCA Houston Healthcare Northwest is located at 710 Cypress Parkway.

In December 2018, HCA Houston Healthcare hired John Corbeil to lead the Kingwood Medical Center, and tapped Chris Osentowski as the division's new chief development officer.

With some 4,231 licensed beds as of Dec 17, 2018, HCA Houston Healthcare is the largest health care system in the Houston area, according to Houston Business Journal research. The health care system operates 15 hospitals, nine surgery centers, nine urgent care clinics and six freestanding emergency rooms in the Houston metro area, according to the company website. HCA Houston Healthcare serves more than 1 million patients annually.
