ARLINGTON, Texas — Texas Health Resources has named health care industry expert Jonathan Scholl as executive vice president and chief strategy officer. Scholl joins Texas Health from his position as head of the North American Health Care Provider practice of The Boston Consulting Group.

Jon will provide us with leadership perspectives based on his extensive experience working with major health care systems across the country.”

Scholl will report to Hawthorne and assume his responsibilities as the head of Texas Health’s Strategic Planning and Business Development functions in late February.

“I’m tremendously excited to join the Texas Health team,” said Scholl, “and I look forward to contributing to the exciting innovations we have ahead of us.”
