MetroWest Medical Center has a new CEO in Andrew Harding, who began his first day on the job Monday.

Harding replaces Jeffrey Liebman, who resigned in August after about a year on the job. Harding was named the interim CEO before gaining the job permanently, which was announced Monday by the hospital's Texas-based owner, Tenet Healthcare.

"Andrew is a strong leader who displays great dedication to the patients, staff and physicians of MetroWest Medical Center," Eric Evans, the president for hospital operations at Tenet Healthcare, said in a statement. "He has served as the hospital's chief nursing officer, and I am confident he will continue the meaningful progress we've made in the Framingham and Natick communities."

Harding earned his doctorate of nursing practice from the Institute of Health Professions at Massachusetts General Hospital. He is a fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives, the Academy of Emergency Nursing and the American Heart Association.

Liebman's departure at MetroWest came less than a month after the CEO of Tenet Healthcare's two Massachusetts hospitals, MetroWest and Saint Vincent Hospital in Worcester, resigned. Jeffrey Welch left that post after about a year to oversee Tenet's Miami area hospitals. Ava Collins, Saint Vincent's chief operating officer, was named the interim CEO.
