“AdventHealth is a top-notch organization with a culture that engages you in a way that drives loyalty,” said Dan Enderson, Denver Metro Group president, Centura Health.  

Since 1992, Dan Enderson has faithfully served in AdventHealth ministries across six markets. Most recently, he stepped into his new position as president of the Denver Metro Group at Centura Health. In this role, he serves as the associated regional chief executive officer for AdventHealth’s Rocky Mountain region. 

“I am not outside of the norm; most AdventHealth leaders stay with the organization for life,” said Enderson. 

Prior to taking on the senior operational leadership role in 2021, Enderson served as senior vice president and chief financial officer at Centura for 10 years. Before joining Centura, he was the chief financial officer and senior vice president of Huguley Memorial Medical Center in Burleson, Texas, and the regional chief financial officer for the AdventHealth Southwest Region in Florida.  

Enderson grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where his parents still reside. He went on to receive his Bachelor of Business Administration from Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan, and Master of Business Administration from Webster University in Orlando, Florida. These days, Enderson and his wife, Lauri, spend their free time with their two adult daughters and one grandson who live in and around Castle Rock, Colorado. 

Along with Enderson, Jeremy Pittman also stepped into a new role within Centura and was named chief executive officer of Castle Rock Adventist Hospital in October 2021. Prior to assuming his current position, Pittman was the chief financial officer at Porter Adventist Hospital and before that he was the chief financial officer/chief operating officer at Castle Rock Adventist Hospital. Collectively, Pittman has served Centura’s healing ministry for over 15 years–his entire tenure.    

A faithful and servant leader, Pittman is personally and professionally connected to Centura’s mission. “I have been blessed to live and work in the same community over the past 10 years,” said Pittman. “I strive to make Castle Rock Adventist Hospital a place where my fellow community members feel confident and proud to go because they know they are getting incredible care.” 

Pittman received his Bachelor of Finance and Accounting from Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska, and his Master of Finance and Entrepreneurship from the University of Colorado. Pittman and his wife, Chandra, have two children, Gavin and Georgia, and in their free time they enjoy visiting their family cabin in Grand Lake, snowmobiling, hiking, dirt biking and enjoying all that the Colorado mountains have to offer. 

Shortly following Pittman, Rick Dodds was named chief executive officer at Littleton Adventist Hospital in January 2022. Prior to joining Centura, Dodds served at Kettering Health in Ohio for eight years. 

“Being part of a faith-based health system allows me to practice my faith of putting Christ first in leading the hospital in serving our community. Christ instructs us to teach, preach and heal, and in healthcare, be integrated in each aspect of His commission to us,” said Dodds. 

He grew up on the Union College campus, where his parents have faithfully worked for three decades, in Lincoln, Nebraska. It was of no surprise that Dodds went on to receive a Bachelor of Business Administration from the same college. He then earned his Master of Business Administration from La Sierra University in Riverside, California. Dodds and his wife of 19 years, Victoria, have two children, 13-year-old Adeline and 10-year-old, Ryan. Together, they love to camp, mountain bike, and enjoy all sports, seamlessly fitting into the Colorado lifestyle. 

Faith-driven and mission-focused, Enderson, Pittman and Dodds aim to lead with heart, purpose and faith.
