San Antonio, TX, – Methodist Hospital Stone Oak appoints Peter DeYoung, MD, as the new Chief Medical Officer (CMO). Since December 2018, Dr. DeYoung has been serving as the CMO for Methodist Children’s Hospital. He has practiced as a neonatologist in San Antonio since 2007 and has held various leadership roles within Methodist Healthcare.

During his time at Methodist Children’s Hospital, he has been appointed Chair of the Department of Medicine, Director of Neonatal Outreach and Chief of the Medical Staff. Through practice and administrative leadership, Dr. DeYoung has built strong relationships with the physicians and team members across Methodist Healthcare as well as grown key service lines in both volume and quality.

Dr. DeYoung has not only proven to be a dedicated and thoughtful leader in his most recent role, but he is actually returning to the administrative leadership team of Methodist Hospital Stone Oak. From 2015 to 2018, he served as the hospital’s Medical Director of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) where he was instrumental in growing the unit in quality and complexity of care.

“We are thrilled to welcome back Dr. DeYoung to our leadership team,” said Marc Strode, Chief Executive Officer of Methodist Hospital Stone Oak. “When he practiced medicine here a few years back, he was always well-liked and well-respected. The training and experience he has gained the last two years at Methodist Children’s Hospital will serve him well in this key leadership role on our campus. He is a perfect fit for our culture and what we hope to accomplish clinically and operationally in the coming years.”
