Patti Monczewski has been named Chief Executive Officer at Paris Regional Medical Center.

The announcement was made Wednesday by RegionalCare Hospital Partners.

Monczewski has been at Paris Regional since the summer of 2014, previously serving as chief operating officer and, most recently, as interim chief executive officer.

“We are very pleased to have Patti move into this new role,” said Bobby Walters, Paris Regional Medical Center board chairman. “Patti has done an outstanding job as the interim CEO over the past five months, and it is clear from

numerous conversations with hospital board members, employees and physicians that she is the right person to lead the hospital going forward.”

Before joining Paris Regional, Monczewski held leadership positions at healthcare facilities in California, Louisiana, Missouri and Nevada. She most recently served as chief operating officer at Mercy General Hospital in Sacramento, California. She has had success growing and developing service lines to allow the hospital to better serve the community and region. Facilities where she previously served also had outstanding quality scores and high employee satisfaction.

“I am very excited for this new opportunity to lead Paris Regional Medical Center,” said Monczewski. “This is a great hospital with an outstanding commitment to high quality, compassionate care. I look forward to working with the medical staff, the hospital board, and the employees as we move forward, making sure our neighbors from northeast Texas and southwest Oklahoma have the hospital they desire and deserve.”

Monczewski received her M.B.A. from Clemson University and her B.S., cum laude, in accounting from Bob Jones University. She is also a CPA.

 “At RegionalCare we are committed to providing opportunities for both personal and professional development and are delighted to have this chance to recognize the great things that Patti has done in both her role as COO and in the interim CEO position,” said Rob Jay, chief operating officer at RegionalCare Hospital Partners. “We are excited about the future of Paris Regional Medical Center.
