Texas Health Plano Welcomes New Vice President|
PLANO, Texas — Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano is pleased to announce that Josh Floren has been named vice president of professional and support services.
In his new role, Floren, a native of Abilene, Texas, is providing oversight for ancillary and support services, including radiology, rehab, pharmacy, orthopedic joint program and nutrition services. As a member of the senior administrative leadership team, Floren will collaborate on the strategy and business development plans that will enhance service delivery to patients, physicians and the community.
“Josh is an excellent addition to our leadership team,” said Mike Evans, R.N., M.S.N., president of Texas Health Plano. “His knowledge of finance and perspective on health care have quickly become valuable assets to Texas Health Plano as we continue to grow our services to meet our community’s needs.”
For Floren, it was the ever-changing nature of health care and continued opportunities for improvement that drew him into the healthcare industry.
"I had the opportunity to work with multiple physician group practices and hospitals throughout my training and education and was fascinated by their dedication to continuous improvement," Floren said. "I learned that improving value to the consumer required a focused effort on quality of care, patient experience and improved access to services. The ability to work in a challenging industry and improve the care delivery system immediately caught my interest and I never looked back."
Floren earned a bachelor's of biomedical science degree from Texas A&M University, as well as a master's degree in health administration from Washington University in St. Louis. He completed a fellowship and served as the associate administrator at Charleston Area Medical Center in Charleston, W.Va. Immediately following his post-graduate fellowship, he was certified by GE as a Six Sigma Blackbelt. He moved to Dallas in 2007 to join Parkland Health and Hospital System and ultimately became the executive vice president of operations.
Outside of work, Floren enjoys spending time with his wife of eight years, Valerie, as well as their three children, Jackson, 6, Brooks, 3, and Charlotte, who was born at Texas Health Plano on Nov. 1.
Floren will be president of the North Texas Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives in January, and is an advisory board member of the American Diabetes Association and American Cancer Society. He is also active in his church.
