Most recently, he served as CEO of Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, Florida – one of the largest hospitals in the country.

Powers earned his bachelor’s degree in public affairs with a minor in business and sociology from Indiana University. He earned his master’s degree in business administration from the University of Sydney in Sydney, Australia.

Powers’ ability to respond to a rapidly changing landscape, while collaborating with key stakeholders, will elevate CommonSpirit’s commitment to delivering high-quality, compassionate care to patients in both our rural and metropolitan markets in Colorado and Kansas.
