2. The three markets include northern, central and southern markets. Ihor Sawczuk, MD, the former president of Hackensack (N.J.) University Medical Center, will serve as president of the north market.

3. Ray Fredericks, the former president of JFK Medical Center in Edison, will serve as president of the system's central market.

4. Kenneth Sable, MD, formerly the president of Neptune City, N.J.-based Jersey Shore University Medical Center, was tapped to lead the system's south region.

5. Hackensack Meridian's new care transformation services division will be led by Tim Hogan, the former president of Holmdel, N.J.-based Bayshore Medical Center and Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank, N.J., along with several other institution leaders. Dean Lin, formerly the regional president of Ocean and Southern Ocean Medical Center, was appointed president of care transformation services and physician practices.

"Hackensack Meridian Health is well positioned for the future, and we are confident that this new structure and these leaders will ensure we continue to provide quality and cost efficient care, and keep the patient experience at the center of everything we do," Mr. Garrett said.
