The Medical Center of Plano announced Feb. 19 that Chris J. Osentowski has been promoted as the hospital’s vice president of business development. He replaces Ben Harris, who earlier this month accepted a position at Las Colinas Medical Center as its chief operating officer. Harris has been with the medical center since 2011.
Osentowski joined the hospital last April as its business development director and has been responsible for leading physician recruitment efforts, referral-optimization development and growing the hospital's orthopedic, neuro/spine, burn and trauma services.
As vice president of the department, Osentowski will be responsible for planning, organizing, coordinating and directing all hospital functions related to growth and business development initiatives.
“We’re excited to welcome Chris to our senior leadership team,” Charles Gressle, chief executive officer of The Medical Center of Plano, said in a news release. “We’re confident that he will help advance our market leadership in health care for the North Texas region.”
Prior to joining MCP, Osentowski worked in the pharmaceutical industry with GlaxoSmithKline and Capellon Pharmaceuticals.
Osentowski holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Texas Christian University and was a co-founder of TCU’s Financial Management Association. He also holds a Master of Business Administration degree with a certification in Health Sector Management from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University.
