New CEO tapped for Pasco Regional Medical Center

DADE CITY — The head of a small hospital east of Atlanta has been named as Pasco Regional Medical Center's new chief executive officer.

Gary W. Lang, who for two years led Walton Regional Medical Center, a 77-bed hospital in Monroe, Ga., has taken over for Stan Holm, who was recently named the new CEO of Midwest Regional Medical Center in Oklahoma, a 255-bed hospital more than twice the size of the one in Dade City.

All three hospitals are owned by Health Management Associates, a for-profit company headquartered in Naples. The publicly traded company owns and operates 54 hospitals in 15 states with about 8,000 licensed beds.

During Lang's tenure at Walton Regional, the county's only hospital, he broke ground on a new facility, expanded the size of the medical staff and added neonatal coverage for the hospital's birth center, according to a news release from Pasco Regional.

Lang holds a bachelor of science degree in business administration from Mississippi State University and a master of science in hospital and health administration from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

During his stint in Monroe, he served as chairman of the One Walton Committee of the Walton Chamber of Commerce and vice chairman of the sponsorship committee. He was set to be chairman of the chamber in 2011.

Lang also served as the Pacesetters campaign chairman for United Way of Walton County and was a member of the Rotary Club of Monroe.

Lang and his wife, Trevette, plan to live in Dade City.

"I look forward to being part of the great things happening in this community," Lang said in the news release. "I am proud to join a team of medical professionals at Pasco Regional Medical Center who remain focused on providing the highest quality of care and customer service possible."

Pasco Regional Medical Center is an 120-bed acute care hospital established in 1973.
