Davis Regional was one of only 405 U. hospitals and critical access hospitals to earn the distinction of top performer on key quality measures for attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measure performance.

Prior to Davis Regional, he led the Sandhills Regional Medical Center in Hamlet, N.C., as the hospital’s chief executive officer, where he oversaw an increase in the hospital’s overall bed capacity, enhanced Sandhills’ radiology services and launched a state-of-the-art wound care center.

A hallmark of Davis’ career has been his consistent involvement in community organizations and charities wherever his work has taken him, including local chambers of commerce, the United Way, Rotary, hospice organizations and workforce development programs.
