Mark Holyoak will become CEO at Wilson Medical Center effective Sept. 10, hospital officials announced Friday.

Holyoak, who has served as CEO at Castleview Hospital, a LifePoint Health facility in Price, Utah, since 2011, will take over from Bill Caldwell. Caldwell announced last month that he would be leaving Wilson to take a job within the Duke LifePoint Heathcare network to lead a four-hospital system in Pennsylvania.

Holyoak said he and his family are excited to be making the move to Wilson.

“From what I have learned of the hospital and its team so far, I am impressed,” he said in a written statement. “I look forward to getting on the ground, getting involved and meeting everyone so that we can begin exploring new ways that we can advance health care delivery and improve the health and well-being of the people we serve throughout this region.”

Prior to his current job at Castleview, Holyoak was chief nursing and clinical officer of Ashley Regional Medical Center, a LifePoint hospital in Vernal, Utah. He also previously served as executive clinical director at Wasatch Surgery Center in Salt Lake City and as nursing supervisor at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center in Las Vegas.

“We are delighted to welcome Mark to Wilson Medical Center,” said Victor Giovanetti, LifePoint Health Eastern Group president. “Mark began his career as a nurse and transitioned into operations, a path that has given him a unique perspective on the role that hospitals play in their communities and the needs of employees, physicians and patients. He is known for his passion for quality care, patient safety and satisfaction, and we believe that he is the ideal leader to lead Wilson Medical Center into the future.”

Holyoak holds a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Phoenix in Utah, a Bachelor of Science in nursing from Creighton University in Nebraska and a Bachelor of Science in biology and chemistry from Southern Utah University.
