Lee Health taps former OSU Wexner exec to serve as chief medical officer

Lee Health has named Iahn Gonsenhauser, MD, chief medical officer. He began the role earlier this month, the Fort Myers, Fla.-based system said in a Jan. 9 news release. 

As CMO, Dr. Gonsenhauser will provide strategic direction to 2,400 employed and independent physicians, as well as to advanced providers on the system's medical staff. He will work closely with Lee Health's Chief Nursing Officer, Jennifer Higgins, MSN, RN. 

Dr. Gonsenhauser joins Lee Health from Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus, where he served as chief quality and patient safety officer. He led a number of COVID-19 response initiatives in that role, including the development and implementation of a call center that rapidly scaled to handle 8,000 calls per day.
