Riverside Health System is proud to announce two new executive hires. Frankye T. Myers, MSN, RN, NE-BC will join Riverside as its chief nursing officer (CNO) and Michael Oshiki, M.D. will serve as president of Riverside Regional Medical Center (RRMC). Both will bring immense expertise to their roles to oversee and provide high-quality care across Hampton Roads communities.

“We are thrilled to welcome both Frankye and Dr. Oshiki to our team. They each bring extensive experience that will allow us to continue to provide the highest quality of care to the communities we serve,” said Dr. Mike Dacey, President and Chief Operating Officer at Riverside Health System. “The safety and wellbeing of our patients is always our top priority, and through their leadership we will continue to care for others as we would care for those we love — to enhance their well-being and improve their health.”

Frankye brings 30+ years of experience to her role as CNO. With deep roots in the community, Frankye has held key leadership roles at HCA John Randolph Medical Center and Chippenham Johnston-Willis Medical Center, where she served as CNO for nine years. She has also previously worked at VCU Health System, where she served as adjunct faculty in the School of Nursing. Leaning on her prior leadership across Eastern Virginia, Frankye understands the needs of the community firsthand, which will enable her to engage Riverside’s nurses with compassion and empathy, and amplify the welcoming environment Riverside offers its patients.

Dr. Oshiki brings experience as a board-certified family medicine physician. He currently serves as chief executive officer of William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso, Texas. Prior to this role, he served as CEO of Fox Army Health Center, an outpatient health center in Alabama and southern Tennessee. Under his leadership, both medical centers enhanced their quality, safety and financial performance. These efficiencies will translate to RRMC, where Dr. Oshiki will build on Riverside’s high standards in safety and quality of care to strengthen the support healthcare providers and patients receive.

Frankye will join Riverside Health System in March, replacing current CNO Nancy Littlefield, who has announced her plans to retire in June. Dr. Oshiki will take over as president of Riverside Regional Medical Center in April, succeeding Dr. Dacey, who has served as interim president since July 2021 and will remain Riverside Health System’s president and chief operating officer.
