Providence Health & Services has named Dale Surowitz, current chief executive of Providence Tarzana Medical Center, as its new chief operating officer for all Southern California operations.

Surowitz will replace Kerry Carmody, who announced in July he would retire Nov. 1 after nearly 40 years with Providence. Carmody, a Valencia resident, is also interim chief executive of Providence Holy Cross in Santa Clarita.

As regional COO, Surowitz will oversee operations at the five Providence medical centers in the Greater Los Angeles area, Providence TrinityCare Hospice and Trinity KidsCare Hospice and the organization’s philanthropic foundations.

“As we enter a new era of health care, I feel fortunate to be a part of Providence as we lead the way in providing top quality and affordable health care from birth through life,” Surowitz said in a statement. “I have seen the impacts of this organization on Providence Tarzana and in the surrounding communities where outreach programs provide services for those most in need.”

Surowitz has been Tarzana Medical Center’s chief executive for 15 years. Previously he headed North Hollywood Medical Center and was an administrator for Doctors Hospital of Montclair and Ontario Community Hospital.

“We are very pleased that Dale has accepted this call to serve as the chief operating officer for our health system here in Los Angeles,” said Michael Hunn, senior vice president and chief executive of the Providence Southern California Region. “His skills and experiences are a perfect match for our ever growing need to align with physicians, better coordinate care, reduce health care costs and improve the patient experience.”
