Dignity Health consolidates area hospital leadership
Sacramento Business Journal

Dignity Health has quietly consolidated its hospital executive ranks in Sacramento — a move that left popular former Mercy Folsom president Michael Ricks out of the lineup. Ricks left Dignity Health in June, according to health system spokesman Melissa Jue. Edmundo Castañeda is now hospital president for both Mercy General and Mercy Folsom. This follows a similar change last year when Gene Bassett retired from Methodist Hospital of Sacramento.
