Sa­reen, 59, started at the public hos­pi­tal, which has a Level I trauma cen­ter, ear­lier this month. He suc­ceeds

Dr. Anita Soni, the hos­pi­tal’s chair of medicine, who served as in­terim med­i­cal di­rec­tor for a year.

Be­fore com­ing to HHC, Sa­reen was VP and re­gional CMO at Pres­ence Sts. Mary and El­iz­a­beth Med­i­cal Cen­ter in Chicago. Pre­vi­ously, he was med­i­cal di­rec­tor for in­pa­tient ser­vices at Janesville, Wis.based Mercy Health Sys­tem.

Will­rich, 54, will be­gin his new role Oct. 1. The de­vel­op­ment com­pany is a part of an af­fil­i­a­tion be­tween the two or­ga­ni­za­tions an­nounced in March.

Bay Health is fo­cused on sup­port­ing a Bay Area-wide healthcare net­work, a sep­a­rate joint ven­ture be­tween UCSF and John Muir Health. Will­rich will lead the com­pany’s de­vel­op­ment of new tools to co­or­di­nate care through de­liv­ery in­te­gra­tion and pa­tient com­mu­ni­ca­tion por­tals as well as es­tab­lish­ing out­pa­tient fa­cil­i­ties and joint ser­vice lines be­tween UCSF and John Muir Health.
