Newly created 11-member board to oversee U of Miami Health System

The University of Miami in Coral Gables, Fla., announced on Oct. 10 the creation of a new 11-member board of directors to oversee the University of Miami Health System.

University officials said in a news release the board was created in response to the rapidly changing industry and that the experienced healthcare and business leaders on the board will help "create a critical framework to guide the strategic vision of UHealth ... to serve better its patients and the community."

A UHealth spokesperson told Becker's Hospital Review Oct. 24 the health system was previously overseen by the University of Miami's board of trustees.

"Creating an independent board of directors for UHealth will make it possible to tap the expertise of highly regarded leaders who have agreed to join it. This strategic move will enable UHealth to accomplish our ambitious goal of becoming a preeminent academic health system that provides superior care to patients while improving population health, advancing discoveries, and developing the clinical spaces to educate the next generation of outstanding health professionals," University of Miami President Julio Frenk, PhD, said in the news release.

The board, which comprises 11 members including current University of Miami board of trustees members and other healthcare leaders, is expected to meet quarterly.

UHealth is the only academic healthcare system in the region.
