DeKalb Health announced Tuesday that Fred Price has been named president and chief executive officer. He will start Jan. 21.

Price will replace Kelly Dunham, who has been serving in an interim capacity since the announced resignation of former CEO Kirk Ray on Aug. 31.

Price has over 25 years of experience in a variety of health care settings: physician-owned, for-profit, nonprofit, faith-based, academic medical centers, and all complex and integrated health care systems. Prior to joining DeKalb Health, Price was CEO of Monroe Hospital for four and a half years until September. Previously, he held the positions of vice president of patient care services, and chief nursing officer at Monroe. His experience spans executive, managerial, and clinical positions with Norton Healthcare in Louisville, Ky., and Spectrum Health, UNC Hospitals and UNC Healthcare, in North Carolina.

Price earned his MBA in health care administration from the University of Phoenix and his BSN from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
