Dr. Saul Weingart will join Tufts Medical Center in Boston on July 15 as its chief medical officer.
Weingart, 54, comes to Tufts Medical Center from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, also in Boston. At Dana-Farber, Weingart has served as VP for quality improvement and patient safety, leading a series of initiatives related to infection control, ambulatory medication safety, information technology and patient engagement.
“Dr. Weingart is a respected and talented leader with a passion for continuous quality improvement,” Eric Beyer, president and CEO of Tufts Medical Center, said in a release.
“Saul Weingart is a name that is synonymous with quality, innovation and patient safety,” Dr. Michael Wagner, CEO of the Tufts Medical Center Physicians Organization, said in the release.
Weingart replaces former CMO Wagner in this role. Though Wagner was appointed president and CEO of the physicians organization last September, he has continued to carry out the CMO duties during the interim period.Follow Rachel Landen on Twitter: @MHrlanden
