Alex Rodriguez will join St. Elizabeth Medical Center, Crestview Hills, Ky., as vice president and chief information officer Feb. 25.
Rodriguez, 46, currently is CIO of the Health Alliance of Greater Cincinnati, where he has been in senior management since 1995. His work with the Health Alliance included consolidating network infrastructure across the system's hospitals, and his duties recently expanded into the areas of corporate compliance and internal audits.
Since 2006, the Health Alliance has been bogged down in litigation over the efforts of three member hospitals to sever ties with the system. -- by Gregg Blesch/ HITS staff writer
