The Univer­sity of Rochester (N.Y.) has named Dr. Mark Taub­man, cur­rently dean of the School of Medicine and Den­tistry, as se­nior VP for health sciences and CEO of the Univer­sity of Rochester Med­i­cal Cen­ter. Taub­man, 63, will re­main dean and be­gin his dual roles Jan. 1.

Taub­man will suc­ceed Dr. Brad­ford Berk, who will be lead­ing the univer­sity’s new Rochester Neu­rorestora­tive In­sti­tute. Berk suf­fered a se­ri­ous spinal cord in­jury in 2009 that sparked his drive to im­prove care—in a pa­tient- and fam­ily-cen­tric ap­proach—for those with chronic neu­ro­log­i­cal con­di­tions. Taub­man, a car­di­ol­o­gist, has been the med­i­cal school’s dean since March 2010. He came to the med­i­cal cen­ter as chief of the car­di­ol­ogy unit and as the Paul N. Yu pro­fes­sor of medicine in 2003.

Bart Hove has been named in­terim pres­i­dent and CEO at Well­mont Health Sys­tem, the Kingsport, Tenn.-based sys­tem that is un­der­go­ing a search for a part­ner. Hove suc­ceeds Denny DeNar­vaez, who re­signed this month after four years at the helm.

The sys­tem tapped Kauf­man Hall & As­so­ciates to as­sist with the part­ner­ship search and has nar­rowed the suit­ors to three undis­closed not-for-profit sys­tems.

Be­fore join­ing Well­mont, Hove was CEO of a num­ber of other hos­pi­tals in the South­east, in­clud­ing Delta Re­gional Med­i­cal Cen­ter, Greenville, Miss.; Good Sa­mar­i­tan Hos­pi­tal, Lex­ing­ton, Ky.; and Crest­wood Hos­pi­tal in Huntsville, Ala.
