UAB Health System names CEO

Dawn Bulgarella is the new CEO of Birmingham, Ala.-based UAB Health System and CEO of the UAB/Ascension St. Vincent's Alliance, effective immediately. 

The University of Alabama System Board of Trustees announced Ms. Bulgarella's appointment Feb. 3, along with the appointment of Anupam Agarwal, MD, as dean of the UAB Marnix E. Heersink School of Medicine, senior vice president of Medicine and chair of the Health Services Foundation Board. 

 Both Ms. Bulgarella and Dr. Agarwal had served in the respective roles in an interim capacity since June 2022. Ms. Bulgarella most recently served as president of the UAB Health System and CFO of the UAB/Ascension St. Vincent's Alliance, a strategic alliance formed in 2020 with the neighboring Birmingham-based health system. Dr. Agarwal served as executive vice dean from 2014 to 2022 and directed the division of nephrology from 2008 to 2021.

 "Dawn and Anupam proved to be extremely effective throughout their long careers at UAB and in these critical interim roles," UAB President Ray Watts, MD, said. "They both clearly exhibited the knowledge, talent and leadership required to ensure UAB Medicine's continued ascent as a national leader in health care. They have played an invaluable role in our unprecedented success, and the continuity of their leadership will propel us even further."
