Pe­ter McCanna named pres­i­dent of Bay­lor Scott& White

Modern Healthcare - - REGIONAL NEWS - —Alex Kacik

Dal­las-based Bay­lor Scott & White Health has cre­ated a new lead­er­ship po­si­tion to be filled by Pe­ter McCanna, the or­ga­ni­za­tion an­nounced last week.

McCanna will as­sume his role as pres­i­dent in mid-Septem­ber, tak­ing on some re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of Bay­lor Scott & White CEO James Hin­ton (See Q&A with James Hin­ton, page 46). In re­vert­ing to a co-lead­er­ship model first put in place just af­ter the 2013 merger of Bay­lor and Scott & White, the new lead­er­ship po­si­tion will help the 48-hos­pi­tal sys­tem stream­line com­mu­ni­ca­tion across the con­tin­uum and be­come more nim­ble, Hin­ton said.

McCanna has more than 30 years of ex­pe­ri­ence in health­care man­age­ment, most re­cently as ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent and chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer at North­west­ern Memo­rial Health­care in Chicago. Dur­ing his 15-year ten­ure at North­west­ern, McCanna helped grow its op­er­at­ing rev­enue from $700 mil­lion to more than $5 bil­lion.

With to­tal as­sets of $10.8 bil­lion, Bay­lor Scott & White is the largest not-for­profit health sys­tem in Texas and has been grow­ing steadily over the past sev­eral years.
