John Lynch III will leave St. Luke's Episcopal Health System, Houston, after nearly 20 years to take over as president and chief executive officer of three-hospital Main Line Health, Bryn Mawr, Pa., on Aug. 8. Lynch, 44, will succeed Leland White, who stepped down last summer for health reasons. Mike Buongiorno, Main Line's chief financial officer, has served as acting CEO in the interim. Lynch is executive vice president and chief operating officer at St. Luke's Episcopal Health System and CEO at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital, home to the Texas Heart Institute. St. Luke's is the primary private teaching hospital for Baylor College of Medicine. St. Luke's said it had not made a decision on an interim replacement for Lynch. -- by Cinda Becker
