USA Health has named Josh Snow chief executive officer of University Hospital in Mobile. The hospital is the region’s only level 1 trauma center and a nationally recognized burn center.

Prior to joining USA Health, Snow served as market president for The Medical Centers of Southeast Texas in Beaumont, part of Steward Health Care, where he provided executive leadership for a healthcare network comprised of two full-service hospital campuses with more than 1,200 staff and 250 physician affiliates.

“Josh’s extensive experience leading hospital and medical group operations across the Southeast will support University Hospital’s efforts to provide world-class compassionate care to people in our region,” said Owen Bailey, USA Health CEO and senior associate vice president for medical affairs.

Snow also served as CEO for Davis Regional Medical Center in Statesville, North Carolina, and has held additional senior leadership roles in other community health systems.

A native of North Carolina, Snow earned his bachelor’s degree in healthcare administration from Appalachian State University and his master’s in healthcare administration from the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

“Josh brings a strong track record of developing and launching healthcare services, which aligns closely with the rapid growth of USA Health, the region’s only academic health system,” said John Marymont, vice president for medical affairs and dean of the Frederick P. Whiddon College of Medicine at the University of South Alabama.

Prior to the national search for a CEO, University Hospital was administered by Shannon Scaturro, chief operating officer and assistant vice president for medical affairs. He moved into his current role as COO in April 2023.

“Throughout his career, Josh has been a hands-on hospital leader for both day-to-day operations and strategic growth of key clinical programs,” said Scaturro. “He is metric-oriented, business savvy, has a track record of building strong working relationships with physicians and has experience with graduate medical education. We look forward to the impact he will have in our community.”
