Mercy Springfield Communities appoints new president

Posted online

Mercy Springfield Communities has promoted from within for a new president.

John Myers, chief operating officer for Mercy Springfield Communities, is taking on the president role previously held by David Argueta, according to a news release. Argueta was named as president of Mercy Southwest Missouri, a region that includes the Springfield market, last month.

“I’ve worked in various health care systems, and I’ve seen firsthand how this region is different. This is a hub for medical care for thousands of patients, and we keep growing," Myers said in the release. "I’m honored and excited to be part of that growth and to help Mercy meet the changing needs of the patients who rely on us here in Springfield and beyond throughout the larger region."

Myers joined Mercy in 2022 as COO in Springfield and has more than 20 years of experience in health care operations and clinical services leadership.

Argueta is settling into his new role leading Mercy Southwest Missouri Communities.

“Mercy’s presence in the Ozarks is significant,” Argueta said in the release. “Southwest Missouri is a large and important region for Mercy. It includes patients across 27,000 square miles and more than 200 sites of care. Creating a regional approach allows us to lead all facilities in the region in a coordinated manner and deepen existing services."
