West Penn Allegheny Health System named Robert Brandfass to succeed Judy Hlafcsak as executive vice president and general counsel, effective Feb. 1.

Hlafcsak left the Pittsburgh-based system in September to pursue other endeavors, a West Penn Allegheny spokesman said in an e-mail. Brandfass, 50, joins the system during a costly restructuring.
