Beth Israel Deaconess names Tabb president and CEO
Tabb, 47, currently is CMO at Stanford Hospital & Clinics, a 477-bed hospital in Palo Alto, Calif., according to news release from BIDMC. He previously was Stanford Hospital's chief quality and medical information officer. Earlier in his career, he was president of clinical data services for GE Healthcare Information Technologies.
Tabb will replace Eric Buehrens, who has served as BIDMC's interim president and CEO since January, when former president and CEO Paul Levy announced that would step down to seek "new challenges."
"The landscape of healthcare is shifting at unprecedented speed, and it is critical that the medical center has a president and CEO who can skillfully guide us through the significant challenges we face," Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Board Chair Stephen Kay said in the release. "As a physician with an extensive track record in hospital administration and business, Kevin Tabb has a deep understanding of integrated healthcare delivery that will keep BIDMC at the forefront of quality care."
