Thomas C. Royer, M.D.
Interim CEO, Administration
Parkland Health and Hospital System
5201 Harry Hines Blvd.
Dallas, TX 75235
The Dallas Medical Resource Executive Committee, at its recent meeting,
unanimously voted to thank you for your service as Interim CEO at Parkland
Health and Hospital System.
When you agreed to take on this assignment last fall, DMR’s Board
of Trustees had great concerns about the leadership transition at Parkland
and the stability of the organization during the transition period. It
was assuring to have the Parkland Board of Managers select an experienced,
well-known and seasoned hospital system executive to serve as the Interim
CEO. In the face of a very difficult and challenging situation with many
varying expectations, you have provided that leadership and served with
dignity and tenaciousness.
We particularly appreciated your partnership with DMR as Co-Chair of the
1115 Waiver Work Group and your consistent concern for Parkland’s
patients, employees and physicians.
The members of the Executive Committee wish you the best in your future
Margaret Jordon Ray L. Hunt Ronald G. Steinhart
