Singing River Health System names new CEO

Posted: Updated:
PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) -

A Pascagoula native will be taking over as Chief Executive Officer of Singing River Health System in Jackson County Saturday. Kevin Holland, a Pascagoula High School graduate, started his first job with the Environmental Services Department at Singing River Hospital.

Now, after more than 16 years with the company, Holland is getting ready to step into the top office after being named to the position by the Health System's Board of Trustees.

"After going through a careful selection process, we as a Board are extremely proud to bring on Kevin Holland as our next CEO," said Board member Mike Heidelberg.

"Kevin is a local man with a wealth of experience in health care administration and a tremendous knowledge of Singing River Health System."

Holland has served SRHS in many capacities in his 16 years with the company. He has been Chief Operating Officer/ Hospital Operation for the entire system since 2009.

"I can honestly say that my job many years ago in Environmental Services at Singing River Hospital is the reason I became interested in pursuing a health care administration career," said Holland.

"Now, to be named as Chief Executive Officer for Singing River Health System, I have reached a wonderful spot in my life's journey. I commit to the community that I will give my very best to maintain SRHS as a world class provider of health care."
