Christina Oh joins Trident Health as CEO on May 3. (Photo/Provided)Trident Health has named a new chief executive officer to replace Todd Gallati, who will be stepping down after 13 years leading the health care system.

Christina Oh joins Trident Health as president and CEO on May 3. She most recently served as CEO for Abrazo West, Tenet Healthcare’s flagship hospital in Phoenix.

Oh has 12 years of experience in health care, Trident Health said in a news release, including working for health systems while focusing on employee retention and expanding community outreach.

The company said that Oh began her health care career in South Carolina, working at Coastal Carolina Hospital in Hilton Head. She also has experience working in executive positions at Piedmont Medical Center in Rock Hill and Placentia-Linda Hospital in Placentia, Calif.

Oh said she and her husband are excited to move back to South Carolina.

“As I start a new job with my new Trident Health family I’m mindful of how they cared for the Lowcountry during the COVID pandemic and did it with love and kindness toward their patients and each other,” Oh said in a statement.

Gallati said Oh would be a good leader for Trident Health going into the future.

“She has led hospitals that have similarly complex specialties as Trident that include trauma, cardiothoracic, neurosurgery, orthopedics, oncology, spine and women’s and children’s services," Gallati said. "But, just as important, she connects well with patients, staff and physicians. She will be a tremendous addition not just to Trident, but also to the Lowcountry.”

Oh holds a Master’s degree in health care administration from the Medical University of South Carolina where she graduated cum laude. She also holds an undergraduate degree in business administration from Baylor University with a major in marketing and a minor in Asian studies with a concentration in Japanese language.
