Bon Secours names new Hampton Roads market president
Pat Davis-Hagens will relocate to Hampton Roads from Ohio
Bon Secours has named Pat Davis-Hagens as its new Hampton Roads market president, the health system announced Tuesday.
Davis-Hagens is currently the president of The Jewish Hospital – Mercy Health, in Cincinnati, Ohio, a role she has held since 2014. Bon Secours is part of the Bon Secours Mercy Health system. She will relocate to the Hampton Roads area to take the place of Amy F. Carrier, who left the Bon Secours Mercy Health system to be the president and CEO of Lynchburg-based Centra last month.
Davis-Hagens joined Mercy Health in 2006 as the vice president of patient care and chief nursing officer at Mercy Health – Fairfield Hospital in Cincinnati and has served in other leadership roles. Bon Secours Mercy Health formed in 2018 when Bon Secours Health System and Mercy Health combined to form the country’s fifth-largest Catholic health care ministry and one of the 20 largest health care systems.
As the market president, Davis-Hagens will oversee all Hampton Roads operations. The health system runs three hospitals in Franklin, Newport News and Portsmouth.
“Pat is an integrative and dynamic leader with notable achievements that drive improved community outcomes while ensuring the patient is at the center of every decision,” Paul Smith, Bon Secours Mercy Health group president, said in a statement. “She has the benefit of building upon a firm foundation of excellence over her 15 years with the ministry, where she focused on compassionate, quality patient care and efficient, effective operations.”
Davis-Hagens holds a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Salem State College and an MBA from Plymouth State College.
