Kathryn Gillette will be the CEO and Market President for Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg, according to a news release.  

Gillette will lead a regional network that will be called Bayfront Health System beginning April 1, when for-profit Health Management Associates takes over 80 percent ownership.  

As the Tampa Bay Times reports, Gillette has spent the past 13 years working for HCA-owned hospitals that compete in the Tampa Bay market with  HMA and Bayfront. 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
