HCA Names New CEO of Miami Hospital

HCA Healthcare (NYSE: HCA) named Allyssa Tobitt as CEO of HCA Florida Mercy Hospital in Miami, bringing her down from Virginia.

Tobitt takes over leadership of the 488-bed hospital for David Donaldson, who was recently named CEO of HCA’s Presbyterian/St. Luke Center and Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children in Denver. He had been CEO of Mercy Hospital since 2019, so he led the hospital through the Covid-19 pandemic.


Tobitt was most recently CEO of HCA’s Parham Doctors’ Hospital in Richmond, Virginia. That hospital earned a 5-Star quality rating from CMS. Having worked for HCA since 2012, she was previously chief operating officer at Reston Hospital Center, chief operating officer of HCA Florida Sarasota Doctors Hospital and assistance VP of operations at HCA Florida Aventura Hospital.

She earned a bachelor’s degree and an MBA from Middle Tennessee State University.

“Allyssa brings successful strategic leadership, operational efficiency and a passion for improving patient outcomes,” stated Charles Gressle, president of HCA East Florida Division. “We are excited about welcoming Allyssa back to the Miami-Dade market and HCA East Florida.”

According to the latest data from the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration, Mercy Hospital had a 49.6% bed occupancy rate in 2022. It earned $47.8 million on revenue of $368.7 million.

HCA Florida recently announced it had $1.8 billion in capital improvements lined up for its South Florida hospitals, including several big expansions at Mercy Hospital.
