Dignity Health has hired a new president at Mercy General Hospital and a chief physician executive for the Greater Sacramento-San Joaquin area. Edmundo Castaneda replaces longtime hospital president Denny Powell, who retired in June. The top doctor job — a new position — went to Dr. Karl Ulrich. Both men started their new jobs this month. Castaneda, 42, comes to Mercy General from Tenet Healthcare Corp.’s Sierra Medical Center in El Paso, Texas.
