Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano announced Tuesday that interim president Josh Floren has been named president of Texas Health Plano.

Floren, who had served in the interim role since January, joined Texas Health Plano as vice president of professional and support services in July 2013.

Floren brings experience in providing oversight for Texas Health Plano’s ancillary and support services in radiology, rehabilitation, pharmacy, orthopedic joint program and nutrition services. He was also instrumental in the opening of the Texas Health Ben Hogan Concussion Center of Plano and the Ben Hogan Sports Medicine Clinic at Toyota Stadium in Frisco. Named after champion golfer and native Texan, Ben Hogan, the 6,500-square-foot clinic opened in March and provides medical services for FC Dallas youth and professional athletes.

Under Floren’s leadership, Texas Health Plano was also the first hospital in North Texas to offer EOS, a low-dose, 3-D imaging technology.

"While Josh has only been with Texas Health Resources for a short period of time, his commitment to advance care delivery, by working collaboratively with physicians on the medical staff and other caregivers, will enable Texas Health Plano to continue to lead the North Texas market in improving the health of the communities we serve," said Brett McClung, executive vice president and North Zone operations leader at Texas Health Resources in a press release.

Floren holds a Bachelor of Science in biomedical science from Texas A&M University and a master’s degree in health administration from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.

Prior to joining Texas Health Plano, Josh served as vice president of operations at Parkland Health and Hospital System and associate administrator of the Charleston Area Medical Center Health System in Charleston, West Virginia. He is also the past president of the North Texas Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives and was an advisory board member for both the American Diabetes Association and the American Cancer Society.

Floren is a member of class 32 of Leadership Plano, a program of the Plano Chamber of Commerce to educate and empower current and future city leaders.
