David C. Hogan, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Baptist Memorial Health Care, has retired after 29 years of service with the health care organization.
His retirement was official Jan. 25. Friends, family, colleagues and Hogan’s pastor at Bellevue Baptist Church, Dr. Steve Gaines, gathered to celebrate his career.
Hogan began his health care career with the Baptist organization in 1973 as personnel director at the former Obion County General Hospital. He went on to become the administrator at the local hospital, a position he held when the hospital became affiliated with Baptist Memorial Health Care in 1982 and became Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union City.
His responsibilities grew to include oversight of other Baptist regional hospitals as the senior regional administrator of Baptist Memorial Health Care Development Corporation.
In 1994, Hogan became a vice president and in 1998 he assumed the role of executive vice president and chief operating officer.
Hogan will continue to serve the organization as a senior consultant.
“David Hogan is an institution at Baptist, and his contributions made a lasting imprint on the organization,” said Stephen C. Reynolds, president and CEO of Baptist Memorial Health Care. “We are fortunate and pleased that he will continue to share his insight and expertise with the organization as a consultant.”
A native of Union City, Hogan graduated from Obion County Central High School and the former Memphis State University, where he received a bachelor’s and master’s degree in business administration.
He is a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives, the Rotary Club of Memphis and the Healthcare Research and Development Institute. He is also a deacon at Bellevue Baptist Church.
Hogan and his wife, Linda, have two children and three grandchildren.
