MANSFIELD—Methodist Health System has named Juan Fresquez the new President of Methodist Mansfield Medical Center. Fresquez is no stranger to DFW. He began his career at Parkland Hospital in Dallas and has more than 28 years of acute care hospital management experience.
He most recently served as Chief Operating Officer of the Arizona Group – Carondelet St. Joseph’s Hospital. Fresquez was instrumental in improving patient satisfaction, quality and financial performance at the 486-bed acute care facility. Before Carondelet, he served as the Chief Operating Officer at Houston Northwest Medical Center for 4 years.
In 1987, he earned a B.S. in Nuclear Medicine with specialization in Physics at the University of the Incarnate Word. He then went on to earn a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix. Fresquez and his wife Carla of 29 years are looking forward to moving to the area.
“Fresquez is an outstanding leader with a proven track record in operational excellence,” said Pam Stoyanoff, executive vice president and COO of Methodist Health System. “His background and experience will be a perfect complement to the Methodist Mansfield culture and our mission to improve and save lives in our communities with the highest level of quality, care and compassion.”

“I am looking forward to serving the community and working closely with the dedicated staff, physicians, and volunteers at Methodist Mansfield,” said Fresquez. “It’s an honor to have been given the opportunity to lead this exceptional team and I am committed to continuing the tradition of providing the best care possible to people living in Mansfield and the surrounding communities.”
Fresquez’s predecessor John Phillips, FACHE, spent the last seven years as president of Methodist Mansfield Medical Center. During his tenure the hospital grew to 254 beds and became a Level 3 trauma designation. Methodist Mansfield while under his leadership, the hospital earned a Magnet® designation, the highest quality distinction for nursing.
