Molinaro, who will continue to serve as CEO of Abrazo Arrowhead Campus/Abrazo Arizona Heart Hospital and Abrazo Central Campus, will oversee the operations of the six-hospital system, which also includes Abrazo Maryvale Campus, Abrazo Scottsdale Campus and Abrazo West Campus.

Michele Finney, who has led the successful development of Abrazo Community Health Network since 2014, has been named CEO of Tenet Healthcare’s three-hospital Desert market in California, which includes Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs, JFK Memorial Hospital in Indio and Hi-Desert Medical Center in Joshua Tree.

“We have already made significant progress in developing our integrated healthcare system in Phoenix,” said Jeffrey Koury, CEO of Tenet’s Western Region. “Frank is a dynamic, talented leader who will work collaboratively with our hospital management teams in developing coordinated service lines, enhancing access to high-quality healthcare, and focusing on our most important mission – providing an outstanding patient experience at our hospitals.”

Molinaro has served as CEO at Abrazo Arrowhead Campus since 2011. He was named CEO of Abrazo Arizona Heart Hospital in 2015, when the hospital became a satellite campus of Abrazo Arrowhead. In 2016, he was also given responsibility for leading Abrazo Central Campus. During his tenure at Abrazo Arrowhead/Abrazo Arizona Heart Hospital, Molinaro helped lead the combined facilities to exceptional results, particularly in the areas of quality and patient satisfaction.  Under his leadership, Abrazo Arrowhead earned an “A” rating from The Leapfrog Group two years in a row, as well as a Tenet Circle of Excellence Award, Truven Health Top 50 Cardiovascular Hospitals designation, and a Joint Commission Top Performer award, all in 2014.  In 2016, Abrazo Arizona Heart Hospital was one of only two hospitals across the company to receive Tenet’s award for Outstanding Improvement in Patient Satisfaction.

 “I am excited to be given this opportunity to help drive Abrazo Community Health Network forward and build on the progress we have already made over the last several years under Michele’s leadership,” Molinaro said. “I look forward to working with all of my Abrazo Community Health Network colleagues to fulfill our unified goal of consistently providing high-quality, compassionate care to Phoenix residents.”

The CEOs at Abrazo Maryvale Campus, Abrazo Scottsdale Campus and Abrazo West Campus will now report to Molinaro.
