Dennis Kiley has been named interim president/CEO for Metroplex Health System effective July 9. Kiley replaces Carlyle Walton, who recently announced his departure to take on a new role as president of the Adventist Health Policy Association (AHPA), the public policy and advocacy organization for 90 Seventh-day Adventist hospitals and affiliated care delivery organizations across the country.

“We are so blessed to have Dennis rejoin Adventist Health System in this capacity, and with almost 40 years of healthcare experience, I’m confident he will provide a seamless experience during this transition,” said Terry Shaw, president/CEO for Adventist Health System.

“His rich background in managing operations with joint partners, working closely with physicians and fostering relationships within the community will be a tremendous asset for Metroplex Adventist Hospital,” added Randy Haffner, president/CEO for Adventist Health System’s Multi-State Division.

Kiley has spent his entire career in Seventh-day Adventist health care, starting as an administrative resident in 1979 at Shawnee Mission Medical Center. He has held numerous leadership roles over nearly four decades, including senior vice president at Tennessee Christian Medical Center, president/CEO of Gordon Hospital and president/CEO of Emory-Adventist Hospital. From 2015-2017, Kiley served as president/CEO of Adventist Takoma Regional Hospital.

“My wife, Kathy, and I are Texans at heart and look forward to learning more from the team that serves inside the hospital walls and meeting the members that make the Killeen community thrive,” said Kiley.
