St. Vincent Health System of Little Rock said Monday that it has created a CEO position for its flagship hospital, St. Vincent Infirmary, and Chad S. Aduddell has been hired to fill the spot.   

"We are growing at a rapid pace and expect significantly more growth in the months ahead," said Peter D. Banko, president and CEO at St. Vincent Health System, in a news release. "Chad's addition to our team will bring detailed focus to the Infirmary and further our efforts towards building a person-centered and physician-centric health system."

Aduddell will report directly to Banko. Bob Lyons, senior vice president & COO of St. Vincent, had been the head of the Infirmary. Lyons is leaving St. Vincent on Sept. 7 and that position is being replaced with the CEO slot.   

"It will also give me the opportunity to spend my time completely focused on building a regional and statewide health network," Banko said in the release.

Aduddell previously worked at St. Anthony Hospital in Oklahoma City, where he was the president of the Bone & Joint Hospital and the chairman and administrator of the St. Anthony Cardiovascular Institute.

St. Vincent Infirmary is licensed for 615 beds.
