West Penn Allegheny Health System named Terry Wiltrout to be the CEO of Canonsburg General Hospital, the health system said today.
Wiltrout, 39, had been interim CEO of the North Strabane hospital since June, when former CEO Kim Malinky stepped down.
"Terry is a talented health care executive who has been instrumental in the success of Canonsburg General and the growth of our southern Allegheny County and Washington County market presence over the past several years," said Dr. Keith Ghezzi, interim CEO of West Penn Allegheny.
Wiltrout joined the hospital's leadership team in 2003 and was named vice president of operations in 2007. He began his career with the West Penn Allegheny, which owns Canonsburg General and four other hospitals in the Pittsburgh region, in 1991 as a computer operator.
He most recently led development of West Penn Allegheny's new Outpatient Care Center in Peters.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
