The new chief executive and president of Maricopa County’s public health care system is expected to start his new job at the end of September.

Steve Purves was hired to succeed Betsey Bayless as the Maricopa Integrated Health System’s top leader.

The Arizona Republic reports that Purves has served as president and CEO of the publicly funded Munroe Regional Medical Center in Ocala, Fla., since 2006.

He also has led regional hospital systems in South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.

Maricopa Integrated Health System is the county’s special health care district and a public hospital system that voters agreed to create in 2004.

The system provides care for the poor and uninsured and is funded by federal and state dollars and a special county levy on property-taxpayers.
