New York-Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan has named Dr. Henry Ting its new senior vice president and chief quality officer.

Ting, a cardiologist, directs New York-Presbyterian's clinical-quality and patient-safety initiatives. He previously was the associate dean of the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, Minn., and also directed the Mayo Clinic Quality Academy, which provides quality-improvement education to all Mayo clinicians.

New York-Presbyterian is one of the largest hospitals in the country with more than 2,200 staffed beds.

Ting replaced Dr. Eliot Lazar, who died in January.
