A Chamber of Commerce reception this evening welcomed the new CEO and President of Covenant Health System. Melinda Clark is a registered nurse who comes to Lubbock from St. Louis.
Clark says her id badge at Covenant will say CEO on one side CEO, but the other side will say RN, because she wants people to know that she is a nurse and not be intimidated by that other title.
A year-long nationwide search for a new Chief Medical Officer has led Covenant Health System to promote one of their own.
Wednesday, the hospital officially named Dr. Scott Robins as its new Chief Medical Officer. Robins he has practiced medicine in Lubbock since 1981.
If the name and new title sound familiar, Dr. Robins has already been serving as Chief Medical Officer for Covenant Specialty Hospital and interim CMO for Covenant Medical Group.
