Decatur Morgan Hospital names new president 

Special to the Enquirer  

Kelli S. Powers, chief financial officer of the Huntsville Hospital Health System since 2014, has been named president of Decatur Morgan Hospital.  

According to a joint announcement from Health System CEO David Spillers and the Decatur Morgan Hospital Advisory Board, Powers will transition to her new role over the next few months, succeeding Nat Richardson, who accepted a position with the University of Maryland Health System in May.  

“We are excited for Kelli and for the impact that she will make in Decatur and Morgan County,” Spillers said. “She has done a great job at the system level in our CFO position, and we are pleased that we can use her unique skills in leading one of the major hospitals in our health system.”  

In addition to her time in Huntsville, Powers’ 30-plus year career in healthcare has included leadership of Athens-Limestone Hospital and other executive-level responsibilities at Lanier Health Services in Valley, as well as at Baptist Medical Center of Montgomery, East Alabama Medical Center in Opelika and DCH Health System in Tuscaloosa.  

A native of Lanett, Powers holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Alabama and a masters degree in management in healthcare from Vanderbilt University.  

Spillers said the transition period for Powers is flexible, enabling the health system to fill her current role as smoothly as possible.
