TAMPA — AdventHealth has named Denyse Bales-Chubb CEO of its Tampa operations, effective July 1.

According to a press release, Bales-Chubb currently serves as CEO of the Altamonte Springs-based hospital system’s Wesley Chapel Hospital, a post she has held since 2014. She succeeds Brian Adams, who will remain with the organization as vice president of new markets for AdventHealth’s central Florida division.

“Denyse has proven to be an exceptional leader throughout her nearly 30-year health care career,” states Bruce Bergherm, senior executive officer of acute care services for AdventHealth West Florida Division, in the release. “Under her leadership, AdventHealth Wesley Chapel has expanded in size and services to meet the needs of a growing community, and with her results-oriented approach, familiarity with the market and dedication to our mission, I am confident that she can lead AdventHealth Tampa to new heights.”  

Under Bales-Chubb’s leadership, the release states, AdventHealth Wesley Chapel opened AdventHealth Central Pasco ER, a 24-bed, 18,000-square-foot, freestanding emergency department. The hospital also forged a partnership with Moffitt Cancer Center that saw the establishment of an outpatient satellite center that provides treatment, screenings and survivorship programs for local residents.

“I am incredibly honored to have the opportunity to lead AdventHealth Tampa,” said Bales-Chubb. “I will cherish the memories and bonds I created at Wesley Chapel, and looking ahead, I am excited to work with caregivers and team members at AdventHealth Tampa as well as those who call that community home as we continue to advance our mission and foster wholeness among our friends and neighbors in the surrounding area.”
