The following is a reprint of a BIZ Buzz article in Pilot Online:
A new leader begins his tenure next week at Bon Secours DePaul Medical Center in Norfolk.
John Barrett will take the reins as CEO. He replaces Dan Duggan, who was promoted in September to the post of executive vice president and COO of Bon Secours St. Francis Health System in Greenville, S.C. Duggan had led DePaul since 2006.
Barrett comes from Appalachian Regional Healthcare System in Boone, N.C., where he served as executive vice president and COO for nearly six years. Prior to that, he was CEO of Page Memorial Hospital in Luray.
Barrett has roots in the Norfolk area: some family members make their homes here, and his wife graduated from the DePaul nursing program.
