Medical City Frisco recently announced Patrick Rohan is being promoted to serve as its chief executive officer, effective March 1.

Rohan has been chief operating officer of both Medical City Frisco and Medical City Plano since 2017.

“For the past three years, Patrick has been instrumental in Medical City Frisco’s successful expansion to meet the growing healthcare needs of this dynamic community,” Medical City Plano CEO Carlton Ulmer said in a press release announcing the move. “His strategic leadership as a hospital administrator directly correlates to safe, quality and compassionate care.”

Charles Gressle, the previous full-time CEO of both Medical City Frisco and Medical City Plano, was promoted last May to chief administrative officer for the East Florida division of HCA Healthcare, the parent company of Medical City Healthcare.

As a 61-bed acute care hospital, Medical City Frisco’s services include orthopedics, adult and pediatric surgery, robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery and imaging and emergency services. During his time as COO of Medical City Frisco and Medical City Plano, Rohan oversaw the introduction of a spine surgery program and comprehensive women’s and maternity services in Frisco.


Rohan has also previously served as COO and interim CEO at HCA Healthcare’s Plantation General Hospital in Plantation, Florida, and worked with a number of other Florida-based hospitals.

“Patrick has a proven record of operational leadership with a dedication to providing exceptional, quality healthcare,” Medical City Healthcare President Erol Akdamar said in the press release. “I am confident he will lead Medical City Frisco to the next level of excellence.”
