Michael Mandl, a longtime Emory University executive, has been named president and CEO of Emory Healthcare, the school's health system.
Mandl, 52, has served as the university's executive VP for business and administration since he joined the Atlanta institution in 2003. He now will oversee one of the largest health systems in the Southeast, including five acute-care hospitals and a network of clinics and physicians. He replaces John Fox, who left the system this year to lead Troy, Mich.-based Beaumont Health.
Before coming to Emory, Mandl was a VP at Duke University and a member of its senior leadership team. He has also held leadership positions at the University of Pennsylvania, KPMG and GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals.
Dr. Clay Dunagan has been named senior VP and chief clinical officer for St. Louis-based BJC HealthCare.
Dunagan, 59, will continue to serve as quality VP and leader of the system's Center for Clinical Excellence, positions he has held for the past 20 years. As head of the center, Dunagan has led the development of scorecards and other metrics to help providers improve quality and reduce measured adverse events.
In his new role, Dunagan will work with physicians from St. Louis-based Washington University and all BJC-affiliated doctors to develop more comprehensive, evidence-based approaches to care.
