HOSPITALS AND HEALTH SYSTEMS
David Morlock is now CEO of the University of Toledo (Ohio) Medical Center, in addition to already serving as executive VP of finance and administration at the University of Toledo.
Morlock, 48, has more than 25 years of experience in healthcare, higher education and finance. Before coming to the university, Morlock was most recently a senior VP at Chicago-based revenue-cycle management and consulting firm Accretive Health. Before that, he served as CFO and senior associate director at the University of Michigan Health System.
Morlock has been with the University of Toledo since September when he took on the role of executive VP. He was then asked to assume the additional responsibilities as CEO for hospitals and health centers, coinciding with the departure of the medical school’s executive dean, Dr. Jeffery Gold, who recently accepted a position as head of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha.
Margaret Peterson has been named president of Dignity Health-California Hospital Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Peterson, a registered nurse who also holds a Ph.D. in administration, most recently was CEO of Desert Valley Hospital and Desert Valley Medical Group in Victorville, Calif., where she led expansion efforts that included the opening of a comprehensive heart center. Before that, she was CEO of Victor Valley Community Hospital, Victorville, Calif., and Simi Valley (Calif.) Hospital and Health Care Services.
