TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Several senior leaders within the North Mississippi Health Services (NMHS) have new roles.

NMHS CEO Shane Spees made the announcement on Tuesday, Sept. 21.

These promotions are part of a “systemness” reorganization, he stated.

The NMHS oversees hospitals and clinics throughout northeast Mississippi and west Alabama, including the North Mississippi Medical Center (NMMC) in Tupelo.

David Wilson will take on the role of NMHS Chief Operation Officer, in addition to his current role as the NMMC president. In the additional role, Wilson will oversee the operations for all NMHS hospitals and existing joint ventures.

Vice President TJ Adams will take on the additional role of NMMC administrator. His current surgical service line responsibilities will be expanded to include surgical services at NMHS hospitals in Amory, Tupelo, West Point and Hamilton, Alabama. He will remain the administrative leader of the cardiovascular service line in Tupelo.

Angie Everett will oversee all post-acute/long-term care, rehab/therapy services and case management.

Todd Davis will oversee facility management and construction across the hospital system.

Domingo Valpuesta will oversee cancer care, radiology and pharmacy services.

Melody Poole will lead the organizational performance/quality/accreditation, infection control and medical staff support services across the hospital system.

These promotions will take effect on Oct. 1.

Spees continued:

"We refer to these organizational changes as “Systemness 2.0” as it represents restructuring of leadership to address the ongoing need to operate more as a system rather than as a collection of individual hospitals, clinics, outpatient facilities and nursing homes. Future market demands driven by payors and consumers will require increasing levels of efficiency, productivity, agility, standardization and targeted growth; all of which will require greater coordination and leveraging of resources across the system. Our experience through COVID has demonstrated the tremendous value of systemness and this new organizational structure will allow us to leverage the momentum of systemness that has developed over the past two years."
