HOSPITALS AND HEALTH SYSTEMS
Alan Channing, president and CEO of Sinai Health System in Chicago, announced his retirement, effective July 1.
During his 10 years as CEO, Channing oversaw the transformation of Sinai from a once-struggling system on the brink of closing into one of the country’s leading safety-net health networks.
In 2013, Sinai, founded by Jewish immigrants in 1919, made headlines when it acquired historically Catholic institution Holy Cross Hospital to create a not-for-profit health network estimated to generate annual revenue of more than $500 million.
Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center, Houston, added two new executives to its team with the appointment of Dr. Harold Gottlieb to chief medical officer and the promotion of Allen Tseng to COO. Gottlieb, a boardcertified internal medicine physician, joins Memorial Hermann from Christus Health, Irving, Texas, where he was Gulf Coast regional CMO.
Tseng, who previously worked at Texas Health Resources in Arlington, has been with Memorial Hermann since 2010. Before his promotion, he served as the Houston medical center’s senior director of business development and ambulatory services.
