Ballad Health announced Wednesday that Deborah “Debbie” Dover has been tapped to serve as its new chief human resources officer and senior vice president of talent engagement. 

Expected to start in late April, Dover will lead efforts to integrate Ballad Health’s desired culture and values and be responsible for setting the strategy and vision to attract and retain talent. 

Dover comes to Ballad Health from Memorial Healthcare in Owosso, Michigan, where she served as vice president of human resources. She has previously served corporate director of human resources for Mountain States Health Alliance.

“Her familiarity with our region, its culture and the legacy organizations, combined with her years of experience in a variety of other settings, were important factors in her appointment,” a press release from Ballad Health stated. 

David Sensibaugh – president and chief executive officer of Integrated Solutions Health Network, a subsidiary of Ballad Health – was asked to serve as the interim vice president of human resources until a permanent selection was made. He will return to Integrated Solutions Health Network to continue to lead the organization once he has helped Dover transition to her new role.

Dover earned her bachelor’s degree in business administration from Central Michigan University and later earned her master’s degree in business administration from East Tennessee State University.
