When Edward Hospital and Health Services, Naperville, Ill., and Elmhurst (Ill.) Memorial Healthcare merge July 1, Pamela Davis will be the CEO of the new health system.

Davis, 64, who is currently president of Edward Hospital in Naperville, will continue to serve in that role when she takes the helm of the new system, which will also include Elmhurst Memorial Hospital and Linden Oaks Hospital at Edward, Naperville.

Several other leadership changes are also planned for the system when it goes into effect next month. Mary Lou Mastro, 58, will become president of Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare, leaving her current post as president of Linden Oaks.

“(Mastro) has been instrumental to Edward's success and brings more than 35 years of hospital leadership experience to Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare in operations, planning, licensure and regulatory compliance, public policy and advocacy, physician relations, new business development, and the patient care experience,” Davis said in a release.

Gina Sharp, 37, will replace Mastro in her role as president of Linden Oaks after serving as controller of Linden Oaks since 2004.

“Gina is an enthusiastic, creative and strategic leader with a proven track record of improving clinical and financial operations,” Davis said in a release.

Mastro and Sharp will both report to Davis, as will Jim Doyle in his new position as chief transition officer for the system. Doyle is currently acting president and CEO of Elmhurst Memorial. His age was not immediately available.

The name of the new system has not been decided, according to a spokesman.
