Providence names Mayo new Southern Oregon area CEO

Providence Health & Services has named a Washington hospital administrator as its new chief executive officer for Providence Southern Oregon Service Area.

Cindy Mayo, CEO at Providence Centralia Hospital in Centralia, Wash., for the past six years, will take the Southern Oregon reins in August.

She has overseen a 128-bed facility and aided in the implementation of Epic, the electronic health record system used by many of the 31 Providence hospitals.

"Cindy brings a wealth of experience and successes and has the right mix of compassion and leadership for this important position in our ministry," said Dave Underriner, chief executive for Providence in Oregon, in a statement.

Mayo was not available for comment on Monday.

Before joining Providence in 2007, Mayo was vice president and chief nursing officer at Mercy General Hospital in Sacramento. Before that she was a member of the administrative teams at ScrippsHealth hospitals in Chula Vista and San Diego.

Before moving into administration, Mayo was a critical care and surgical services nurse for 15 years, beginning in 1976.

Mayo earned a Bachelor of Science degree from California State-Dominguez Hills and a master's in nursing and nursing systems administration from San Diego State.

Mayo takes over a role vacated by Tom Hanenburg, who held the post for seven years before joining Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Kaiser Permanente Northern California this spring. Larry Bowe has served as interim chief executive.
