Michael Scialdone has been named CEO of Memorial Health System, owned by the city of Colorado Springs, Colo., effective Oct. 1.
Scialdone has been serving as interim CEO since May 2012, when Dr. Larry McEvoy left the organization.
On August 28, Colorado Springs voters approved the terms of a long-term lease under which Memorial's namesake 548-bed hospital and other assets will be operated by the newly formed University of Colorado Health system as part of an almost $1.8 billion deal. The UC Health system is a joint venture between the 437-bed University of Colorado Hospital in Aurora and the Poudre Valley System. Poudre Valley System includes the two-campus 238-bed Poudre Valley Hospital, Fort Collins; and 136-bed Medical Center of the Rockies, Loveland.
