Nochomovitz, 58, previously was president and chief medical officer of the latter group. The new University Hospitals Physician Services also will handle patient scheduling, seven urgent-care centers, six hospitalist programs and the system's corporate health services.
Nochomovitz reports to Chief Operating Officer Achilles Demetriou, who leads the system's day-to-day clinical operations. Also reporting to Demetriou are University Hospitals Case Medical Center President Fred Rothstein and a new and unnamed president of community hospital and ambulatory networks. The system's new chief nursing officer, Cathy Koppelman, and new chief medical officer, Eric Bieber, will also report to Demetriou.
Bieber, 49, will join University Hospitals Jan. 1 and comes to Cleveland from three-hospital Geisinger Health System, Danville, Pa., where he was executive vice president for strategic network development. He replaces Nathan Levitan, who was named president of the UH Ireland Cancer Center earlier this year.
Steven Standley, 55, who has been in charge of master facilities planning as vice president of system services, has been given the new title of chief administrative officer and expanded responsibilities.
