“While at MUSC, he helped the institution successfully weather significant decreases in state funding while enhancing the school’s financial standing,” Dr. David Dunn, University of Louisville executive vice president for Health Affairs, said in a news release. Snook joined the University of Louisville Health Sciences Center on Jan. 3 and replaced Terry Gossom, who retired in November, a spokeswoman said. Snook’s age was not available at deadline.
The health sciences center includes schools of dentistry, medicine, nursing, public health and information sciences, as well as 14 centers and institutes. Its primary teaching hospital is the University of Louisville Hospital, which had been part of a three-way merger that would have brought the facility under Englewood, Colo.-based Catholic Health Initiatives. Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear blocked the participation of the university hospital, and the other two parties to the deal—Jewish & St. Mary’s HealthCare and St. Joseph Health—went forward on their own to create KentuckyOne Health.
