Medical City Plano named a new CEO this week after current CEO Jyric Sims was promoted to president of HCA Healthcare’s West Florida Division.
The new CEO, Ben Coogan, will begin serving in the position on June 26. He is currently the CEO of Medical City Fort Worth.

He started as a marketing representative before moving up in the Baylor Healthcare System, where he serves as a physician liaison, administrative director of Accelecare Wound Center, practice administrator, and area administrator before returning to Medical City Healthcare where he has served in executive positions in Medical City Dallas, Medical City Children’s Hospital, Medical City Arlington, Medical City Dallas and Medical City Fort Worth.
