U of Utah Health Care whittles CEO finalists down to 3 candidates

Salt Lake City-based University of Utah Health Care narrowed its CEO search to three candidates, according to The Salt Lake City Tribune.

The institution's CEO search began more than one year ago, after Vivian Lee, MD, PhD, former senior vice president for health sciences, medical school dean and CEO of University of Utah Health Care, resigned in May 2017. Her resignation came one month after the tumultuous firing of Huntsman Cancer Institute Director and CEO Mary Beckerle, PhD, who university trustees voted to reinstate one week after she was fired.

The three finalists are:

  • Derek C. Angus, MD, chair of the department of critical care medicine at the University of Pittsburgh
  • Michael Good, MD, dean of the Gainesville-based University of Florida College of Medicine
  • John G. Hunter, MD, executive vice president of Portland, Ore.-based OHSU and CEO of the OHSU Health System in Portland

The individual appointed to the role will also serve as senior vice president for health sciences and dean of the University of Utah School of Medicine.

University officials have not released a timeline for the final decision, according to the report.
