“Mr. Maier has been a greatly respected, highly regarded leader in our community and we welcome him on board as we continue the search process for the permanent president and CEO at Pardee Hospital,” stated Bill Lapsley, Chairman of the Board. “We are extremely confident in the ability of Mr. Maier to lead Pardee through this time of transition and also very confident in our staff and management who are continuing to provide high quality healthcare to our community.”

His background includes serving as the president and CEO of University of Oklahoma Medical Center in Oklahoma City, Okla. and University & Children’s Hospitals in Oklahoma City, Okla.
Maier will officially begin his position with Pardee Tuesday, Jan. 4, and is working with Kris Hoce, Pardee’s outgoing President/CEO, to ensure a smooth transition.
Hoce has accepted a position leading Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater, Fla., which will provide significant career advancement. Morton Plant is part of Morton Plant Mease and the Baycare Health System.
