Cleveland Clinic adds 3 physicians to exec team

Cleveland Clinic promoted three physicians to its executive team.

Edmund Sabanegh, MD, will serve as hospital president of Cleveland Clinic's main campus. He has served in numerous leadership roles since he joined Cleveland Clinic in 2006, including associate chief of staff and urology department chairman.

Cleveland Clinic selected James Young, MD, to serve as chief academic officer, leading its education and research mission. He previously served as executive dean of the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University; chairman of the Endocrinology and Metabolism Institute; and physician director of the Philanthropy Institute.

The organization named Herbert Wiedemann, MD, chief of staff. Dr. Wiedemann has worked at Cleveland Clinic since 1984 and has served as chairman of the Respiratory Institute since 2007. He succeeds Brian Donley, MD, who was tapped to serve as CEO of Cleveland Clinic London.

"While Cleveland Clinic is well-positioned for the future, it is clear that our organization has grown in scope and complexity and the executive team structure should evolve to meet our future needs," said Cleveland Clinic President and CEO Tom Mihaljevic, MD.
