Salt Lake City, Nov. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CHG Healthcare, the nation's largest privately held healthcare staffing company, has named Leslie Snavely its new chief digital officer.

In this new position, Snavely will guide CHG’s digital strategy as the company continues to develop platforms and tools to help its growing customer base, which includes medical providers in more than 100 specialties and healthcare facilities across the U.S. and around the world.

“We are stronger as an organization because of Leslie’s leadership, strategy and communication skills and we’re excited to have her in this new role,” said Scott Beck, chief executive officer at CHG.
