“I am honored to be joining the more than 21,000 Mission-centered professionals at Centura Health and becoming part of the region’s largest health care network. As a longtime resident of Denver, I understand the important and critical role that Centura Health plays in our community and am excited to join the best hearts and minds in medicine,” she said.
King joins Centura Health from the University of Denver, where she served in progressively responsible senior leadership positions in human resources for 16 years.

At her core, she is a collaborative leader with a strong connection to our Christian healing ministry and solid roots in our community,” said Peter D.
