It's official....the largest healthcare institution in West Texas has a new leader.

Covenant Health Systems named Steven L. Hunter as Chief Executive Officer Wednesday.

Hunter is currently the CEO of  SSM Health Care in Oklahoma where he's held the position since 2000. Prior to that, he served as President of Saint Anthony Hospital in Oklahoma City. Hunter holds a master's degree in hospital administration and a bachelor's degree in medical technology and chemistry.

In a statement released by Covenant, Hunter said he's "delighted at the opportunity" and that "Covenant already has a proud tradition of excellence and I am looking forward to building on that strength even more in the years to come."
