SwedishAmerican CEO Bill Gorski to retire in 2017

Rockford, Ill.-based SwedishAmerican President and CEO Bill Gorski, MD, is retiring, effective July 1, 2017. He has led the organization for 16 years.

Before the organization named him CEO, Dr. Gorski served as the first president of the SwedishAmerican Medical Group and CMO of SwedishAmerican. A family medicine physician by training, he also practiced for 20 years.

During Dr. Gorski's tenure, SwedishAmerican took some major steps, including opening the SwedishAmerican Regional Cancer Center in 2013 and merging with Madison-based University of Wisconsin Health in 2015.

Dr. Gorski earned his medical degree at the University of Cincinnati and completed his residency at University of Illinois College of Medicine-Rockford.

"I have been impressed with Dr. Gorski's steady demeanor and vast knowledge and understanding of healthcare and its many stakeholders as he has led Swedes to great achievement in a time of dynamic change. In addition, he has built a deep and broad management team who are ready and able to succeed him," said Dan Ross, chairman of SwedishAmerican's board.

Michael Born, MD, SwedishAmerican's current chief quality officer and CMO, will succeed Dr. Gorski.
