Texas Health Alliance, located at the intersection of Interstate 35W and Golden Triangle Boulevard, is Texas Health's newest full-service hospital. The project, which includes a 24-hour emergency room, outpatient services, advanced imaging and surgical services, physician offices and acute-care inpatient beds, is scheduled to be completed in 2012.

"Through her time as president at Texas Health Azle, Winjie has displayed a strong ability to grow inpatient and outpatient volumes, expand services in the community and advance quality in many areas of the hospital," said Barclay E. Berdan, senior executive vice president of system performance and alignment at Texas Health Resources. "The design, development and construction of this new hospital is a product of Texas Health Resources' vision for bringing a true continuum of health care services and innovative technology to this community."

Miao will continue to report to Berdan and assume her responsibilities as president of Texas Health Alliance immediately. She will also maintain responsibility for Texas Health Azle until a new president is hired and oriented.

"With physicians as our partners, we are excited to bring not just hospital services but the full spectrum of health care services to all members of this great community," said Miao. "I am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead this hospital and look forward to giving local residents a facility that offers leading-edge technology with a high degree of personalized service."

Miao started her career with Texas Health Resources at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas as an administrative resident and administrative director. During her time there, she oversaw the development of more than $500 million in construction and the growth and development of a nationally-recognized breast health program.

A graduate of Johns Hopkins University, Miao also earned a master's degree in Healthcare Administration, with a concentration in financial management and quality management, from the University of North Carolina.
