SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA (KPLC) - CHRISTUS Health announced that one CEO will lead CHRISTUS Southwestern Louisiana.

Kevin Holland will join the organization as CEO of CHRISTUS Southwestern Louisiana and will oversee both CHRISTUS St. Patrick Hospital and CHRISTUS Lake Area Hospital.

Robbin Odom, who served as interim CEO of CHRISTUS Lake Area Hosptial since last year, will become Chief Nursing Officer of CHRISTUS Southwestern Louisiana.

Donald Lloyd, who has served as president and CEO of CHRISTUS St. Patrick, will depart to pursue other opportunities on Sept. 28.

Lloyd has served as president and CEO of CHRISTUS St. Patrick since 2012 and has worked to improve the ministry's clinical and financial performance. He also developed a strategic and operational collaboration with Imperial Health, supported the acquisition of CHRISTUS Lake Area, worked closely with the physician owners to purchase 51 percent ownership of CHRISTUS Imperial Calcasieu Surgery Center and supported the development of the new Ochsner joint venture. He also recently completed an $8 million Capital Campaign to enhance Neurosurgery, Cardiovascular and Oncology services for CHRISTUS in the region.

This decision follows an announcement in June of last year that CHRISTUS Health and Ochsner Health System had signed a letter of intent to pursue a joint venture of CHRISTUS operations in the Lake Charles area.

Holland and his family will move to Lake Charles from Jackson County, Mississippi, where he spent almost 20 years with Singing River Health System, serving most recently as its CEO. The non-profit system includes two hospitals and Centers of Excellence in Cardiac, Orthopedics, Oncology, and Bariatrics. His 23 years of experience in healthcare include work in operations, strategic planning, joint venture and business development, and in health plans.
