Emory Healthcare Names Dallis Howard-Crow New Chief Human Resources Officer
Dallis Howard-Crow, a health care executive from Illinois-based Methodist Health Services Corporation, has been named chief human resources officer for Emory Healthcare effective Monday, June 23.

Howard-Crow possesses more than 25 years of health care and corporate human resources experience, most recently from Methodist (Peoria, Illinois), where she was senior vice-president. There, she had responsibility for a variety of clinical and operational departments, as well as human resources. Among many notable achievements under her leadership, Methodist earned Magnet Nursing Designation (the nursing profession's highest achievement) in 2004 and was the first Illinois hospital in three years to be presented the Lincoln Gold award for Quality in 2006.

"We are pleased that Dallis has joined Emory Healthcare in a role that is integral to the future of our system," says John T. Fox, president and CEO of Emory Healthcare. "Dallis will have the opportunity to provide strategic leadership across all levels of this organization including recruitment and retention, HR policy administration, employee relations, organizational development and internal communication.

"Her impressive experience in health care administration, human resources and operations are well suited to the momentum underway as Emory attracts and retains employees who make Emory one of the premier health care systems in the country for patient care--and a premier place in which to build a career."

"My family and I are excited about relocating to Atlanta and becoming a part of one of the top academic medical centers in the country," says Howard-Crow. "I look forward to joining Emory's commitment to the total employment and patient experience, from the unique mentoring programs and initiatives for leadership development, to shared decision-making and vision of becoming a Magnet-designated system."

Howard-Crow holds a master's degree in health administration from the University of Colorado at Denver and a bachelor's in accounting from Arizona State University. Prior to joining Methodist, for more than 10 years she served Denver-based HCA-HealthOne, a six-hospital health care system, the majority of that time in the Division office, leading the human resources function during times of multiple changes in corporate ownership. Her early career included Towers Perrin Human Resources Consulting in Denver.
