New York-presbyterian names two execs to succeed Pardes
New York-Presbyterian Hospital divided its top job between two executives named to succeed retiring CEO and President Dr. Herbert Pardes. Cardiologist Dr. Steven Corwin was named CEO, and anesthesiologist Dr. Robert Kelly was named president of the New York City hospital. Pardes, who will turn 77 on July 7, was named to the newly created role of executive vice board chairman. Corwin and Kelly are expected to assume their new roles Sept. 6. Corwin, 55, is executive vice president and chief operating officer for New YorkPresbyterian. Kelly is the hospital’s group senior vice president. Pardes said the size and complexity of New YorkPresbyterian’s operations prompted the board to split the top job. The American Hospital Association Guide reports the hospital includes 2,249 beds across multiple campuses. For the year that ended Dec. 31, 2009, Pardes received $2.8 million in compensation, including benefits, according to the most-recent tax record available to the public. The tax form also lists $2.2 million in compensation for Corwin that year. Kelly reportedly earned $1.6 million.
