Beth Israel Lahey Health revamps leadership

Cambridge, Mass.-based Beth Israel Lahey Health has established new senior management positions and named a new CFO.

The changes are part of updates to the 14-hospital health system's leadership structure to help it deliver on its clinical, research and academic priorities, according to a Dec. 11 news release from BILH.

"Our leadership updates will allow us to better deliver on our strategic goals, including providing extraordinary care to all our patients, shaping the future of healthcare through science and innovation, and providing 70% of care in the community by 2030," Kevin Tabb, MD, president and CEO of BILH, said in the release. "BILH is still relatively young as an organization and will need to continue to evolve to deliver fully on the bold priorities we have set for ourselves."

Peter Shorett was named senior executive vice president and COO, a newly created role. Most recently, Mr. Shorett served as BILH's executive vice president and chief strategy officer.

Pete Healy will be divisional president, Metro Boston, overseeing Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge and New England Baptist Hospital in Boston. He will also continue to serve as president of BIDMC.

Tom Sands was selected as interim divisional president, community care, a newly established role. He will oversee BILH's Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport, Mass., Exeter (N.H.) Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton (Mass.), Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Needham (Mass.), Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth (Mass.) and Winchester (Mass.) Hospital, as well as Beverly (Mass.) Hospital, Addison Gilbert Hospital in Gloucester and BayRidge Hospital in Lynn Mass. Mr. Sands will also continue to serve as president of Beverly, Addison Gilbert and BayRidge.

Susan Moffatt-Bruce, MD, PhD, will remain president of Lahey Hospital & Medical Center in Burlington, Mass., and, along with the divisional presidents, report to Mr. Shorett.

Cindy Rios, who has served as interim CFO since 2022, was named executive vice president and CFO. Previously, she served as market CFO and vice president of medical and radiation oncology for Southfield, Mich-based Beaumont Health. 

Rob Fields, MD, executive vice president and chief clinical officer, will assume additional responsibilities to align healthcare quality, population health and clinical services, according to BILH. The health system's performance network, pharmacy, laboratory services and the hospital-at-home program will report to Dr. Fields. 

Kristen Lepore, executive vice president and chief administrative officer, will also assume additional responsibilities and will now oversee BILH's emergency management. She currently oversees service functions including human resources, information technology, real estate, as well as marketing and communications.

All of the leadership changes were effective as of Dec. 10.
