NEW: UMass Memorial Health Care Names New President and CEO

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

 

UMass Memorial Health Care named Dr. Eric W. Dickson as its new President and CEO on Wednesday. The UMass Memorial Medical Group president and senior associate dean at UMass Medical School will succeed outgoing President and CEO John O'Brien, effective February 25.

“I am deeply honored to become the next leader of this great organization," said Dickson of the announcement.

"As someone who grew up in Massachusetts, graduated from the University of Massachusetts Medical School, spent over a decade working in the UMass Memorial organization as a physician, manager and professor, I am well prepared to help navigate through the evolving health care landscape. My vision for this organization is to make UMass Memorial the best place in America to get care and the best place to give care."

Dickson, 46, is also a professor of emergency medicine at UMass Med School and a practicing emergency department physician at UMass Memorial Medical Center. He is a faculty member at the Institute of Healthcare Improvement in Cambridge as well.

“Dr. Dickson is an ideal chief executive for UMass Memorial Health Care at this time in the organization’s history, taking the helm as the industry itself is undergoing transformational change," said David Bennett, chair of UMass Memorial Health Care’s Board of Trustees, in a statement.

“The entire UMass Memorial organization, its physicians, nurses, care givers and staff – and, most importantly the communities we serve – will benefit from Dr. Dickson’s leadership. He is an exceptional individual known for both careful judgment and disciplined action, and we are delighted that he will be serving the health care system in this new and expanded role.”
