Posted: Updated:

St. Vincent has promoted Dan Parod to president of its southwest region. He joined St. Vincent as chief operating officer of its southwest region in 2016 and began serving as the region’s interim president in February 2017. During that time, Parod built strong relationships with board members, physicians, associates and community leaders. Through his leadership, the St. Vincent southwest region has continued to grow with projects like the St. Vincent Orthopedic Hospital, which is scheduled to open in May 2019, and the St. Vincent Evansville management agreement with Daviess Community Hospital in Washington. 

In his new role, Parod is responsible for advancing St. Vincent’s mission of service in Evansville and the Warrick County Tri-State area, as well as providing leadership and guidance to the more than 750 physicians and 3,500 associates on staff at St. Vincent Evansville and St. Vincent Warrick. He previously served as the senior vice president and chief operating officer of Rockford Health System in Illinois.

Parod earned his Bachelor of Arts in Business Communication from Illinois Wesleyan University and Master of Arts in Labor and Industrial Relations from the University of Illinois. He has also held a number of volunteer community leadership positions, including serving on the board of directors for both the United Way and YMCA.
