CPH announces new Chief Operating Officer

Central Peninsula Hospital announced Thursday the appointment of the hospital’s new Chief Operating Officer.

Matthew Dammeyer will step into his new role as COO on Feb. 13, CPH announced in a news release. The position was previously held by Chief Executive Officer Rick Davis.

Dammeyer most recently practiced as a senior psychologist with Central Peninsula Behavioral Health since vacating the position of assistant administrator with the hospital a year ago. According to the news release, Dammeyer will continue seeing patients part time until March, when he will then fully dedicate his time to the COO position.

“Dr. Dammeyer brings a unique combination of insight and experience to our leadership team and I believe his skills will be a great compliment to the rest of the executive team,” Davis said in the release.

Before his three years as CPH assistant administrator, Dammeyer was director of Behavioral Health for five years and, according to the release, he was “instrumental” in the growth of that program.
