New executive director for Council Fellows program

The Council Fellows program at the Nashville Health Care Council has a new executive director in Hayley Hovious, a former trade director at the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development. She also will run the alumni program of the Council Fellows, which was launched two years ago to bring together senior industry executives to explore big-picture questions facing the U.S. health care system. Hovious, who replaces Judith Byrd in the Fellows role, earned a bachelor’s degree from Smith College and an MBA from Vanderbilt University's Owen Graduate School of Management.
