Miller CEO in Dallas

Charles Miller, former CEO of Piedmont Medical Center in Rock Hill, is the new CEO at Dallas Regional Medical Center.

Miller, who left PMC in March of 2013 after 14 years, will start his duties April 16.

Miller, a resident of Fort Mill, confirmed the appointment this week during testimony before the S.C. Administrative Law Court.

Dallas Regional Medical Center has 200 beds and about 400 affiliated physicians. Its range of services is similar to Piedmont.

After leaving Piedmont, Miller served as a senior operations staff member, working with 13 hospitals owned by Tenet Healthcare, Piedmont’s parent company. In September of 2012 he was one of about 70 employees let go in a corporate staff restructuring.

He has been operating a consulting service since then. One of his clients has been Piedmont Medical Center.
