Baylor Scott & White Hires From Within For Leader of Grapevine Hospital

Dallas-based Baylor Scott & White Health has selected Chris York to serve as president of its Grapevine campus. York took up his new perch on Monday.

Chris York joins Baylor’s Grapevine campus after four year’s at the system’s hospital in Waxahachie.

As president of Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Grapevine, he’ll lead a 302-bed acute care hospital that became a Level II trauma center last year. Former Grapevine campus president Steven Nelson was promoted to president of Baylor Scott & White’s flagship location in downtown Dallas, Baylor University Medical Center, in July.

York comes over from a stint as president of Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Waxahachie, where he’s spent the last four years. He joined the not-for-profit healthcare system in 2007 and was chief operating officer for Baylor Grapevine from 2011 to 2014. He’ll lend interim leadership in Waxahachie while Baylor Scott & White looks for a replacement.

“While it is bittersweet to say goodbye to the Waxahachie community that welcomed me and my family over these past four years, I know that this medical center will continue to flourish due to the strong culture focused on living out our mission as a Christian ministry of healing,” said York in release.

York went to East Tennessee State University for his bachelor’s degree and a master’s in business administration.
