Cantrell succeeds Corbin Wyatt, who was removed from his position as CEO by The Peak's Board. Wyatt's management did not follow the culture, values, and needs of the company's rapidly growing business.
Cantrell, along with COO and President Phillip Mazaheri, will try to revitalize The Peak brand, recommitting to its core values, and providing a premium experience to its patients, customers and partners.
"Looking ahead, The Peak will continue to build on our momentum by supporting and expanding our franchise presence, creating meaningful local relationships, and ensuring we have the resources in place to deliver the value and service that our patients expect and deserve," Mazaheri said. "At the end of the day, our goal is to enrich the quality of life in our communities. That's what is most important."
