Bassett Healthcare Network fills its Medical Center Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer post from within by naming Ronette Wiley to the newly created role.

 Wiley has been with Bassett for 15 years most recently as VP of Performance Improvement and Care Coordination and Chief Compliance Officer at Bassett Medical Center.

In a statement Bassett Healthcare Network President and CEO Dr. Vance Brown said appointing a separate COO for Bassett Medical Center is necessary and a natural evolution of the change in the network’s operating model.
