Trevino said Parsley has led CHRISTUS in some of the organization’s most important growth, including the development of the Orthopedic Specialty Center, development of the Mid County and Orange Emergency Hospitals, collaboration with Texas Oncology on the development of a free-standing cancer center and extensive physician network development and recruitment.

Parsley, who started his new role last month, is focusing on operations excellence across all CHRISTUS Southeast Texas Health System facilities and maintaining a culture of quality, safety and service.

“I am honored to continue serving the Southeast Texas community in this new role,” Parsley said. “I am committed to making sure we meet and exceed the needs of our patients from all walks of life, as well as continue to maintain and grow our pool of talented Associates, from physicians and clinical staff to all essential non-clinical roles as well.”

Parsley is a Southeast Texas native. He is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin and has an MBA from the University of Texas at San Antonio.

He serves on the Diocesan Finance Council, St. Elizabeth ACTS Leadership Team and a member of the Knights of Columbus. Parsley has also served in other leadership roles, including with Rotary, YMCA, Chamber of Commerce and Capland Speech Therapy Center.
