Clark Names Outgoing UMass Memorial CEO as Distinguished Professor

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

 

Past president of UMass Memorial Health Care Inc., John O'Brien, has been named to Clark University's Mosakowski Institute as a distinguished professor.

The university’s Mosakowski Institute for Public Enterprise acts as a separate body to help improve effectiveness of government and other institutions and address social concerns through the university’s research. Mobilizing this effort is their mission.

The former CEO will begin his tenure at the Mosakowski Institute in August 2013. O’Brien joined UMass Memorial Health Care in 2002.

“I am delighted that John O’Brien will be joining our Mosakowski Institute,” said Clark University President David P. Angel. “John is nationally respected for the work he has done at UMass Memorial, and anyone who has dealt with him during his years in Worcester can see why.”

As the new Mosakowski Professor, O’Brien will play a leadership role in helping to strengthen and catalyze the Institute’s work around issues of health and well-being for individuals and communities.

In order to advance this mission, the Institute and the University seek to strengthen engagement with distinguished practitioners who bring vision, passion, and insight into difficult challenges facing society, including those of access, affordability, and the effectiveness of health care in America.

“John O’Brien is the model of a sophisticated leader of an important institution that uses knowledge to make a positive impact on peoples’ lives,” said Mosakowski Institute Director James R. Gomes. “We couldn’t be happier to have him joining us at Clark.”

O’Brien will retire as president and CEO of UMass Memorial Health Care, Inc., next week. O’Brien will remain with the health care system for several weeks to ensure a smooth transition.

“I could not be more excited as I look forward to working with President Angel, the faculty, the students and the entire Clark University community,” O’Brien said. “It is an incredible honor to accept the Jane and William Mosakowski Distinguished Professor of Higher Education. It is truly the most perfect and fitting next step in my professional career.”

O’Brien is a graduate of Harvard College where he majored in Economics. He received his MBA in health care administration from Boston University.
