Floyd currently serves as the executive vice-president of the medical center where he is responsible for daily operations and the delivery of safe, quality patient care.

    "Brian brings a wealth of experience in leadership at Vidant Medical Center and has an established record of high performance," said Dr. Herman. "He has developed a strong and capable team to support him to continue to move the organization forward. He is uniquely qualified for this role."
