Scott Peek, who has led Chambers Memorial Hospital in Danville as chief executive officer for the past 32 years, has been hired as president of Medical Assets Holding Company in Maumelle, beginning March 1.
Peek began working at the hospital in 1983 as controller to the chief financial officer, a position he held for four years, before serving as assistant CFO for three years.
As president of MAHC, Peek will oversee the overall operations, financials and goals of the organization, which includes a wide variety of health care businesses.
As CEO of Chambers Memorial Hospital, Peek oversaw all aspects of the facility and answered to a seven-member board.
“Scott, with his vast knowledge and skills, will assess, empower and guide employees to ensure the MAHC family of companies reaches higher accomplishments,” said Rodney Thomason, CEO of MAHC.
Peek says he is ready to take on new challenges. He leaves a hospital that was named a Top 100 hospital six years in a row, and he oversaw $30 million in upgrades during his tenure.
“I am looking forward to new challenges, and there are a lot of medical-related businesses in the diverse portfolio of MAHC,” he said.
Peek is a member and past president of Danville Chamber of Commerce, a member of the City Planning Commission, a member and past president of Lions Club, and a deacon at First Baptist Church in Danville. He holds a bachelor of business administration degree and a bachelor of science degree in economics and finance from Arkansas Tech University.
