Debbie Branson deserves some time off after serving as Parkland Health And Hospital System Board chair. Heck, the gal served two terms as chair and has been on the board since 2011. And what a time it’s been. Why it even earned The 2016 Linz Award for her.
This past Friday, February 19, the Board held its annual meeting to vote on who would succeed her as chair. With unanimous approval, they voted for Dr. Winfred Parnell to take over the reins.
In addition to his Ob/Gyn practice, Winfred is also “a member of the medical staff at Medical City Dallas Hospital, where he served in many leadership positions including Department of Surgery Chair, Chief of Staff and on the Board of Trustees.
Other officers elected at the meeting included Michael D. Williams as vice chair and Dr. Paula Dobbs-Wiggins as secretary.
BTW, Debbie’s replacement on the board has not been selected yet.
