FORT WORTH, Texas – Baylor Scott & White Health, the largest not-for-profit health system in Texas, announces today that Charles Williams, FACHE, will serve as president of the Baylor Scott & White DFW – West Region, which includes hospitals in Irving and Grapevine, and Baylor Scott & White All Saints Medical Center – Fort Worth, the health system’s academic medical center in Tarrant County.
“Those who know Charles well attest that he has a reputation for excellence, a passion for service and a drive to never settle,” said Michael Sanborn, chief growth officer and former president of Baylor Scott & White DFW – West Region and Baylor Scott & White All Saints Medical Center – Fort Worth.
Williams moves to DFW from the Waco region, where he served as president of Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Hillcrest.
“I am thankful for the opportunity to have worked with the great team at Hillcrest and the Waco market to accomplish so much for our Central Texas community,” said Williams. “Now, I am looking forward to returning home — to the place where I grew up and where I started my career — to serve this community that is dear to my heart.”
A Fort Worth native, Williams has held executive positions at several DFW-area hospitals, including LifeCare Hospitals of Fort Worth, Methodist Mansfield Medical Center, JPS Health Network and Doctors Hospital at White Rock Lake. He previously served as vice president of performance standards and clinical operations at Tenet Healthcare. He also spent time in South Carolina, where he served as president and chief executive officer of Regional Medical Center of Orangeburg and Calhoun Counties.
Williams will take the new role effective July 17. Brad Crye, chief operating officer at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Hillcrest and a 35-year veteran of Baylor Scott & White, will serve as interim leader while a national search for the Waco position is conducted.
