The Houston-based campus of the Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, where Cordola's taking up the reins, also includes the Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital, TIRR Memorial Hermann and the Memorial Hermann Heart & Vascular Institute-Texas Medical Center.

Cordola joined Memorial Hermann seven years ago as assistant vice president of operations for the Children's Hospital, the group said. Previously, he served as director of operations for Texas Children's Pediatric Associates and Texas Children's Hospital.

Cordola has also held an adjunct faculty member position with the University of Houston Clear Lake Healthcare Administration Program and served as a board member of the university's alumni group.

The 11-hospital Memorial Hermann system, one of the largest not-for-profit health systems in Texas, serves the greater Houston area. Its president and CEO, Dan Wolterman, was ranked No. 36 in Modern Healthcare's 2010 list of the 100 Most Powerful People in Healthcare, released last month.
