Dr. Anthony Slonim has been appointed president and CEO at Renown Health in Reno, Nev. He had most recently served as executive VP and chief medical officer for Barnabas Health in West Orange, N.J.
Slonim replaces Renown's interim CEO Don Sibery, who had held the post since April 2013 after a management shakeup at the organization. The search for his permanent replacement lasted a year.
"We are extremely fortunate to have secured someone with Tony's unique combination of education and experience. Frankly, I feel like we hit the jackpot," Renown Health Board Chairman David Line said, alluding to Reno's gambling culture.
Slonim is a fellow of the American College of Physician Executives and the College of Critical Care Medicine. He is board certified in internal medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine critical care and pediatric critical care and holds faculty appointments at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, the Jefferson College of Nursing and Health, and is a tenured professor of basic sciences, medicine and pediatrics at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine.
Renown Health is a not-for-profit network serving a 17-county area in northern Nevada, the Lake Tahoe region and northeast California. The system includes three acute-care hospitals, a rehabilitation hospital, a skilled-nursing facility, a medical group, an urgent-care network, and a not-for-profit insurance company.Follow John N.
