Peter Shorett Named Chief Strategy Officer for Beth Israel Lahey Health
Cambridge, Mass. – Peter Shorett has been appointed Chief Strategy Officer for Beth Israel Lahey Health (BILH). Peter previously served as the organization's Chief Integration Officer and will continue to oversee efforts to unify clinical and administrative services across the system as he also assumes responsibility for business and network development.
"Peter has dedicated his career to helping build integrated sustainable healthcare systems and healthier communities," said Kevin Tabb, MD, President and Chief Executive Officer of Beth Israel Lahey Health." His depth and breadth of expertise in healthcare strategy and integration will continue to help guide the ongoing evolution of our system and our efforts to meet the diverse needs of our patients and our communities."
Before joining BILH in 2019, Shorett was a senior partner at The Chartis Group, where he served the organizations that formed Beth Israel Lahey Health as a joint strategic advisor, playing a critical role in facilitating the merger and leading integration efforts. Shorett also co-led the Academic Medicine segment for Chartis and has led numerous consulting engagements over the course of 12 years for the nation's top health systems and physician groups. His work has focused on enterprise strategy, mergers and acquisitions, physician alignment, and primary care development and design.
"It is my pleasure to step into my new role with Beth Israel Lahey Health," said Shorett. "I look forward to continuing to work with a remarkable group of colleagues to build on the organization's mission to deliver high-quality, affordable care across eastern Massachusetts."
Shorett received his undergraduate degree from the University of California at Berkeley and his Master of Public Policy from Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government.
Shorett succeeds Stan Lewis, MD, who is retiring after more than 40 years of service to BILH and its legacy organizations. "As we congratulate Peter on his new role, we also want to thank Stan Lewis for his four decades of service and countless contributions to our organization — first at New England Deaconess Hospital, then at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center — and most recently at Beth Israel Lahey Health," Tabb added.
