Joe Rudisill named Chief Executive Officer for HCA Florida Englewood Hospital

Joe Rudisill joined HCA Florida Englewood Hospital today as the new chief executive officer (CEO). He brings more than 16 years of healthcare leadership and operations experience.

Rudisill comes to HCA Florida Englewood Hospital from Mission Hospital, an 815-bed HCA Healthcare facility in Asheville, North Carolina, where he served as chief operating officer (COO) for the past four years. He oversaw various services, including burn, emergency department, facilities, laboratory, medical transport, oncology, pediatrics, radiology, rehabilitation, respiratory, surgery and wound care services. During his time at Mission Hospital, he added ten robotic systems to the hospital and directed some $271 million in capital construction projects.

Before that, Rudisill was the COO and Ethics & Compliance Officer for HCA Florida Bayonet Point Hospital and later became the Interim CEO. 

“We are very excited to have Joe return to the West Florida Division where he will put his experience with a strong growth agenda and surgical robotic system expansions to work in some of the state’s fastest growing communities that Englewood Hospital so proudly serves,” explained Division President Jyric Sims. “He is a highly regarded popular leader who I am confident will do great things for the hospital as he expands access to healthcare services in southern Sarasota County communities.”

Rudisill began his leadership healthcare career at Tenet Healthcare in North Carolina and later served in leadership positions at Bon Secours St. Mary's Hospital and Virginia Urology. He joined HCA Healthcare in 2014 as Associate Administrator at Henrico Doctors' Hospital.

"I am honored to join the leadership team of HCA Florida Englewood Hospital," said Rudisill. "I will work diligently to serve our caregivers, patients and community in a way that honors the legacy of compassionate care and exceptional service."

Rudisill holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Master of Health Administration from Virginia Commonwealth University. 
Rudisill and his wife, Liz, enjoy spending time with their three children exploring the outdoors, playing sports, learning pickleball and cheering on the Tar Heels.
