December 11, 2023

New Executive Team Roles Will Help BILH Deliver on Mission to Deliver Extraordinary Care to the Communities it Serves

BOSTON – Beth Israel Lahey Health (BILH) has updated its leadership structure to help the system deliver on its clinical, research and academic priorities. These updates include the establishment of new senior management positions as well as the naming of a new Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

“Our leadership updates will allow us to better deliver on our strategic goals, including providing extraordinary care to all our patients, shaping the future of healthcare through science and innovation, and providing 70% of care in the community by 2030,” said Kevin Tabb, MD, President and CEO of BILH. “BILH is still relatively young as an organization and will need to continue to evolve to deliver fully on the bold priorities we have set for ourselves.”

Leadership updates that are effective December 10 include:

  • Peter Shorett has been named Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer (COO). In this newly created role, Shorett, who most recently served as BILH’s Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer, will have oversight and responsibility for implementation of BILH’s multi-year strategic plan, Blueprint 2030, network development, system integration and will also be responsible for the sustainable performance of BILH’s 14 hospitals and associated ambulatory centers.
  • Pete Healy will serve as Divisional President, Metro Boston, overseeing four Metro Boston area academic and specialty institutions: Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), Joslin Diabetes Center, Mount Auburn Hospital and New England Baptist Hospital. Healy will partner with the presidents of those organizations to foster greater alignment and coordination and to harness opportunities for clinical, research and educational collaboration across Metro Boston. In addition, Healy will continue to serve as President of BIDMC, a role he has held since 2017.
  • Tom Sands will serve as Interim Divisional President, Community Care, overseeing BILH’s community hospitals and their ambulatory sites: Anna Jaques Hospital, Exeter Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Needham, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth and Winchester Hospital, as well as Beverly, Addison Gilbert and BayRidge Hospitals. The establishment of a Divisional President overseeing BILH’s community care network will help deliver on BILH’s commitment to provide 70% of care in the community by 2030. Sands will serve in this role on an interim basis while a national search is conducted for a permanent Divisional President. He will continue to serve as President of Beverly, Addison Gilbert and BayRidge, a role he has held since 2021.
  • Susan Moffatt-Bruce, MD, PhD will continue to serve as President of Lahey Hospital & Medical Center and, along with the two divisional president roles, will report to the COO.
  • Cindy Rios has been named as Executive Vice President and CFO. Rios has served as Interim CFO since 2022. Before joining BILH, Rios was Market Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Medical and Radiation Oncology for Beaumont Health, a $4.5 billion academic health system comprised of eight hospitals and more than 100 ambulatory sites in Michigan. Prior to Beaumont, she held hospital- and market-level CFO positions with some of the country's largest systems including LifePoint Health, Community Health Systems and Health Management Associates.
  • Rob Fields, MD, Executive Vice President and Chief Clinical Officer, will take on additional responsibilities to align health care quality, population health and clinical services. The BILH Performance Network, Pharmacy, Laboratory Services and the Hospital at Home program will now report to Fields. This will help foster alignment among those entities and BILH Primary Care, Behavioral Services, Continuing Care and Health Care Quality, which already report to the Chief Clinical Officer.
  • Kristen Lepore, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer, will also take on additional responsibilities and will now oversee the system’s emergency management. Lepore currently oversees several system service functions including human resources, information technology, real estate, as well as marketing and communications.
