Cindy Mayo, chief executive of Providence Centralia Hospital, has been named to lead the Southern Oregon Service Area.

Since 2007 she has led Centralia's 28-bed hospital to improvements in quality, financial performance and employee engagement. She has a track record of success with employed and private practice physicians, community members and was at Providence Centralia for the implementation of Epic.

Before joining Providence, Mayo served at Mercy General Hospital in Sacramento as vice president and chief nursing officer and as a member of the administrative teams at Scripps Health hospitals in Chula Vista and San Diego.

She holds a bachelor of science degree from California State University-Dominguez Hills and a master’s in nursing/nursing systems administration from San Diego State University.

Mayo replaces Tom Hanenburg, who left in March for a position in California. SOSA's interim chief executive Larry Bowe now will head north to lead Providence Portland Medical Center as it searches for a permanent chief executive. That positioned opened when Theron Park was tapped to lead the delivery system for the Oregon Region.
