AURORA | Dan Miller was appointed President and CEO of The Medical Center of Aurora earlier this month, HCA-HealthONE announced earlier this month.
Miller replaces Richard Hammett, who was named CEO of Swedish Medical Center in Denver in August.
Miller previously spent 12 years with Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) in a variety of leadership roles, including chief operating officer at Swedish Medical Center.
“I am excited and honored to be chosen as CEO of The Medical Center of Aurora,” Miller said. “I’m looking forward to working with the talented staff and physicians as we continue to provide excellent patient care to the community.”
In his time at Swedish as COO, the hospital opened a new Burn Critical Care Unit and Outpatient Clinic. He also served in developing Swedish’s comprehensive cancer program, making the medical center only the third in the United States to be accredited for pancreatic cancer and the fifth for lung cancer accreditation by The Joint Commission.
Miller earned a bachelor of science degree in human and organizational development at Vanderbilt University in Tennessee, as a master of science in health administration from Virginia Commonwealth University.
Sylvia Young, President and CEO of the HealthONE system, said praised Miller and his incoming leadership at The Medical Center of Aurora.
“The Medical Center of Aurora is a leading facility for the entire metro area,” Young said in a statement announcing Miller’s appointment. “Dan will join an excellent team there and will build upon TMCA’s success and the high standard the facility has set.”
As president and CEO of The Aurora Medical Center, Miller will oversee TMCA’s four campuses, which include the Centennial Medical Plaza and Saddle Rock ER freestanding emergency facilities.
