Cook, who also serves as CEO of Florida Hospital Winter Garden, was named CEO of Florida Hospital Altamonte, according to the news release.
“This opportunity is much more about the strength of the operating teams and all three facilities,” said Cook. “And because each team is so good I can turn my attention to working more with community, and medical staff leadership to enhance a network of healthcare services that are accessible to all members of our community! I feel blessed and humbled to serve in this capacity!”
Cook, previously the CEO for Florida Hospital DeLand, has been the senior vice president/administrator for Florida Hospital Apopka, including executive accountability for Florida Hospital Winter Garden, since 2016. Those titles were formalized to CEO in this recent addition.
