Kerry Watson has been selected by the Memorial Health Board of Directors to serve as interim CEO of Memorial Health.

Watson is the president and CEO of Watson Healthcare & Management Solutions. He also recently served as interim system COO and hospital president at Arnot Health and Arnot Ogden Medical Center in Elmira, NY.

Watson will join Memorial the week of April 17. That’s when he will assume the title as the new Interim President & CEO. Maggie Gill will assist Watson as he makes the transition. 

Just last month, Maggie Gill announced her resignation on Feb. 8 as CEO and president of Memorial Health.

Gill's resignation comes after a contentious relationship between the Chatham County Hospital Authority and Memorial's board following a failed partnership with Novant Health last year.
