Chatsworth-based HealthWest Foundation, a nonprofit health-care organization, said it divided itself into two holding companies, one for its hospitals and the another for its various non-hospital health-care ventures.
HealthWest Medical Centers, the hospital unit, will be headed by Roger Drue, who will have the title of president. He was previously executive vice president of the Mills-Peninsula Healthcare Corp. in San Mateo.
UniHealth USA, the HealthWest company that will handle ventures such as the CareAmerica health maintenance organization, will be headed by Layton Crouch, who will also have the title of president. He has been with HealthWest for nine years, most recently as executive vice president, the company said.
