Wellmont Health System, an eight-hospital system based in Kingsport, Tenn., has named Kent Petty, a military commander with extensive technology experience, as its vice president and CIO, it says.

Petty has been with the organization on a contract basis since August 2009, assisting with CPOE and EMR implementation projects. According to Wellmont, he plans to begin the conversion to CPOE at Hawkins County Memorial Hospital in October 2010 and have all other facilities on line by September 2011. He will also be focused on the regional exchange of medical information among healthcare providers, it says.

Previously, Petty worked for nine years as vice president of information technology for Marriott International, where he was accountable for the application services development and support strategy for all Marriott International business units.
