Posted On: 3/30/2023
Midland Health has appointed Stephen Bowerman as President and Chief Executive Officer.  Mr. Bowerman fills the vacancy left by Russell Meyers as he transitions to a developmental role for the Midland Memorial Foundation, focusing on completion of the Permian Basin Behavioral Health Center and other developmental projects. 

“The board is grateful for the 20 years of service Mr. Meyers has dedicated to Midland Health and our community”, said Devin Alsup, chairperson of the Board of Trustees. “Steve Bowerman is well-prepared to advance the mission of leading healthcare for greater Midland.”

Mr. Bowerman joined Midland Health in 2009 as Vice President, Chief Financial Officer.  His most recent role was President and Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Bowerman has 24 years of experience in healthcare and is a native West Texan, born and raised in Kermit, Texas. He attended West Texas A&M University, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 1999. Mr. Bowerman received his master’s degree in business administration from Texas Tech University in 2012.

"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to continue to work alongside the great staff and physicians of Midland Health", said Bowerman. "This is home for me, and I will continue to lead this organization towards advancing healthcare in Midland.  With tremendous community support and an engaged board, Midland Health is a special organization and I’m humbled to serve as the President and Chief Executive Officer."

Mr. Bowerman and his wife of 21 years, Monica, moved to Midland in 1999, beginning his career at Medical Center Hospital in Odessa.  In 2006, he joined Odessa Regional Hospital and assisted in the acquisition and consolidation of Alliance Hospital to form what is now Odessa Regional Medical Center.  Stephen and Monica have two children. Dylan is a freshman at Texas Tech University and Jack is a freshman at Legacy Freshman High School.
