Angie Orth Becomes Annie Penn Hospital President
Orth began her career in health care as a cashier at Moses Cone Hospital.
Greensboro –Angie Orth is the new president of Annie Penn Hospital. She held that position on an interim basis since August.
Orth has deep experience in rural health care. For three years she served as CEO of Randolph Health in Asheboro. Orth led efforts that returned Randolph Health to profitability, improved patient safety and guided the system to a position where it could be successfully acquired, keeping local health care in that community.
“Running a rural hospital is different than running an urban one and Angie has shown an ability to perform in that challenging environment,” points out Cone Health CEO Dr. Mary Jo Cagle. “Now that she has a strong rural hospital in Annie Penn, I can’t wait to see what she and that terrific staff in Reidsville will bring to that community.”
Orth is no stranger to Cone Health. She previously held several leadership positions with Cone Health between 1983 and 2007, including site administrator for Wesley Long Hospital. And it was at Moses Cone Hospital where she got her first taste of heath care as a cashier during high school and college.
“Working at Moses Cone Hospital got me hooked on health care and on the impact you can have on others,” says Orth. “I see those feelings in the eyes of staff at Annie Penn Hospital. They are dedicated to every patient they see.”
Orth earned her MBA from Wake Forest University and an undergraduate degree in psychology from UNC Greensboro. She is a fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives and brings more than 35 years of experience in health care.
