Randy Moresi, chief executive officer of North Hills Hospital in North Richland Hills, announced Oct.16 he will step down from his position of 25 years.
A search for his replacement will soon be underway.
“A true example of servant leadership, Randy’s passion for his community and dedication to exceptional patient care have left an enduring mark on Northeast Tarrant County and on North Hills Hospital,” said Erol Akdamar, president of the HCA North Texas Division.
An affiliate of HCA, North Hills opened in 1961 as Glenview Hospital and is the oldest of HCA’s four Tarrant County hospitals. The current facility opened in December 1983.
Moresi began his career with HCA as the human resources director at De Tar Hospital in Victoria, Texas, in 1981. He served as vice president of operations at South Arlington Medical Center before joining North Hills in May 1990.
Moresi has helped guide the 164-bed, Joint Commission-accredited hospital through numerous expansions in both services and building projects. Under his leadership, North Hills became the first hospital in the nation to have a Cycle 4 Chest Pain Center and the first in Northeast Tarrant County to have an O-Arm navigation system for computer-assisted spine surgery. The hospital, which specializes in joint replacement and cardiac care, also achieved Primary Stroke Center certification.
Moresi oversaw the development of the Texas Pediatric Surgery Center on the North Hills Hospital campus, one of the first dedicated outpatient pediatric surgery centers in the country, as well as the Calloway Creek Surgery Center and the Dr. David Pillow Senior Clinic, Tarrant County’s longest operating senior specialty clinic.
Most recently, Moresi helped develop the ER at Alliance in 2011, which evolved into the full-service hospital, Medical Center Alliance.
Active in the community, Moresi currently serves the boards of HCA Hope Fund, Northeast Tarrant Chamber of Commerce, MidCities Pregnancy Clinic, Fort Worth/TCU Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the North Richland Hills Economic Development board. He previously served as chairman of DFW Hospital Council and the Community Enrichment Center, and served on the boards of North Texas SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), Birdville Independent School DistrictFoundation and Northeast Leadership Forum.
The city of North Richland Hills dedicated a new walking trail adjacent to the North Hills Hospital campus in Moresi’s name.
