Premier Health Promotes Joann Ringer to President of Miami Valley Hospital South

DAYTON, Ohio (July 2, 2019) – Premier Health announced the promotion of Joann Ringer to President of Miami Valley Hospital South Campus, effective immediately.

“This new position more appropriately reflects the size and scope of both inpatient and outpatient services available at the site,” said Mike Maiberger, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Premier Health. “Joann has been instrumental in managing the growth at the South campus while never losing sight of what is important – the patient always comes first.” 

Ringer has been the chief operating officer at Miami Valley Hospital South since 2012, when it became a fully operational hospital.  She joined Premier in 1992 and has served in progressively responsible roles since that time and has led the expansion of South’s campus to now include the Cancer Center, Maternity Center and most recently the Joint and Spine Center, offering services to meet patient need. Through the years under Ringer’s leadership, the team at Miami Valley Hospital South has earned exceptionally high patient experience ratings and has become an integral part of the community.

Joann Ringer graduated from The Ohio State University and went on to earn a master’s degree in management from Indiana Wesleyan University. She currently serves on the board of the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance. She is a former member of the Board of Directors for South Dayton Metro Chamber of Commerce, the Junior League of Dayton, Oakwood Schools Education Foundation, and the Dayton Art Institute Associate Board.

Honors earned include the Dayton Business Journal Healthcare Executive of the Year, Women in Business Network Top 25 Women in Business to Watch, and the Dayton Daily News Top Ten Women Award.
