Gary Honts Named Chief Executive Officer for JFK Memorial Hospital

Gary Honts, who has been leading JFK Memorial Hospital in an interim role since September 2012, has been named permanent chief executive officer.  As CEO, Honts will oversee strategic, operational and clinical activities for the 156-bed facility and related outpatient clinics.

“Gary is a highly qualified CEO with more than 30 years of healthcare industry experience during which he has led a wide variety of healthcare organizations including community hospitals, large trauma centers and an academic medical center,” said Jeffrey Koury, senior vice president for Tenet’s California region. “During his tenure at JFK Memorial, Gary has demonstrated exceptional leadership capabilities.  His extensive experience in hospital operations coupled with his knowledge of the hospital, its staff and the community will continue to make him an outstanding leader of the executive team.”  

Since joining JFK Memorial, Honts has developed and executed strategies to provide high-quality, integrated care in the Coachella Valley community. Prior to his leadership post at JFK, Honts served as CEO at Creighton University Medical Center (CUMC) and Community Hospital of Los Gatos.  He also held leadership positions at Atlanta Medical Center, St. Joseph Hospital (now a part of CUMC) and Hilton Head Hospital.  Honts earned an undergraduate degree from the University of Nebraska and a master’s degree in health administration from the University of St. Francis in Joliet, Ill.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the Coachella Valley since joining JFK Memorial and I’m eager to continue our plans for growth and service to the community,” Honts said. “With the continued growth in the region, our hospital and its outpatient clinics, such as the JFK Bone and Joint Institute, provide critical services to the area. We’re committed to meeting the evolving health care needs of our patients and the community.”

JFK Memorial Hospital has been providing medical care to residents in the Central/Eastern Coachella Valley since 1966. The hospital offers a 24-hour emergency room, comprehensive orthopedic services, general surgical services, cardiac and vascular care, urology services, women’s and maternity/obstetrical services, pediatric services, acute care for the elderly unit, ambulatory surgery center and other inpatient and outpatient services.
