WPC Healthcare, a provider of healthcare data solutions, officially named Ray Guzman chief executive officer, effective immediately. Guzman’s appointment kicks off the implementation of a rebranding strategy for WPC, which is a subsidiary of Washington Publishing Company headquartered in Seattle Washington.

In addition to Guzman, WPC Healthcare named Chris Vrooman chief operating officer. Roger Honz remains chief financial officer. According to Fitzpatrick, the new structure streamlines responsibilities and clarifies the operational roles for its executives.
