Daryle Voss has been named president of Mercy Hospital Ardmore. Voss joins Mercy from Norman Regional Health System where he served as vice president and chief administrative officer for HealthPlex Hospital and Moore Medical Center. He will begin his work with Mercy on March 4.
"Daryle brings 20 years of health care experience to Ardmore with a proven track record of helping rural health care facilities reach their full potential," said Di Smalley, regional president of Mercy Oklahoma communities. "His unique skill sets are perfect to lead our southern Oklahoma team."
Voss' experience includes operational roles at both rural health facilities as well as acute care hospitals.

Voss' family, which includes his wife, Sherri; daughters Ryan, 18, and Dylan, 7; and son, Grant, 13, are looking forward to relocating to the Ardmore community in early summer at the conclusion of this school year.
"My family and I are extremely excited about joining the Ardmore community and the Mercy family," said Voss. "As a native Oklahoman, Ardmore has all the components of what makes our state so great."
