LAS VEGAS, April 11, 2024 – Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican Hospitals has named Katherine Vergos, RN, MHA, FACHE, as the new Dignity Health Las Vegas Market President and President and CEO of the Siena Hospital Campus. Ms. Vergos’ first day in her new position will be May 12, 2024.

“Katherine Vergos is a highly skilled and experienced healthcare leader with a strong commitment to patient care, operational excellence, and growth opportunities,” said Tim Bricker, President of the CommonSpirit Health Central Division. “She is a dynamic leader with a proven track record of success in healthcare leadership. Having served in executive roles throughout her career, Katherine brings a wealth of experience to this new role and I am confident she will lead the Las Vegas market of Dignity Health and the Siena Campus to great success.” 

Katherine Vergos earned her Masters in Healthcare Administration from Park University in Parkville, Missouri, and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Marian University in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Ms. Vergos is also a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives and has received numerous awards and recognitions for her outstanding contributions to healthcare.

Most recently, Ms. Vergos was President of the Fond du Lac Market and President of St. Agnes Hospital at SSM Health in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. She led the integration efforts for the Fond du Lac market of SSM Health, resulting in improved operational, clinical, and governance structures and standards. Similar to Dignity Health, SSM Health is a Catholic, not-for-profit health system. 

Mr.  Bricker added, “I am confident Katherine will be a valuable addition to our St. Rose Dominican team, and I look forward to working with her to grow our ministry and improve our healthcare services in southern Nevada.”

As President and Chief Executive Officer of the Siena Campus, Ms. Vergos will serve as senior executive of the company’s flagship acute care hospital, a 326-bed facility employing more than 2,000 health care professionals. Siena is a Level III Trauma Center and home to Henderson’s only Pediatric Emergency Department. As President of the Dignity Health Las Vegas Market, Ms. Vergos will also be responsible for all southern Nevada operations and joint ventures, including four Dignity Health Neighborhood Hospitals, 15 Dignity Health Physical Therapy Clinics, six Community Wellness Centers, and other services.

Ms. Vergos will replace retiring industry veteran Jon Van Boening, who has served as Las Vegas Market President and Siena Hospital President since July 2021, and as a Dignity Health executive for more than four decades.  

Mr. Bricker added, “It is impossible to adequately express my sincere gratitude to Jon Van Boening for the outstanding leadership and dedication he has provided the Las Vegas Market for the past three years. In total, Jon’s career with Dignity Health spanned more than 40 years. He has been instrumental in driving growth and innovation and his contributions have been invaluable to both our company and to the people of southern Nevada. I hope everyone will please join me in wishing him all the best in his much deserved retirement.”
