Dr. Gary Gottlieb, CEO of Partners HealthCare, the largest healthcare provider in Massachusetts, will be leaving that position next year to join not-for-profit medical services provider Partners in Health as its new CEO, Partners HealthCare confirmed Saturday.
Gottlieb will start his new position July 1, 2015. In an email Gottlieb sent Partners HealthCare colleagues late Friday, he said, “This evening I informed the Partners HealthCare Board that I will be stepping down from my position as President and CEO as of July 1, 2015.
“Over the course of our lives, each of us is presented with opportunities that we have not anticipated. One such opportunity has presented itself to me,” he wrote.
