J. Mark McLoone has been named CEO of St. Christopher's Hospital for Children in Philadelphia.
McLoone, 61, has worked in healthcare, mostly children's hospitals, for more than 30 years. He took office this month, replacing Carolyn Jackson, who left the Tenet Healthcare Corp.-owned hospital for another job.
Most recently, McLoone served as CEO of Pottstown (Pa.) Memorial Medical Center. His most recent role
at a children's hospital was as CEO of Methodist Children's Hospital in San Antonio, a position he held for eight years.
Dr. Patrick Battey will become CEO of Piedmont Atlanta Hospital early next year after serving as a co-CEO since January. The hospital is the flagship of the Piedmont Healthcare system.
Battey, 61, will assume the full CEO title after Les Donahue, 60, co-CEO and Piedmont Atlanta's president, retires at the end of the year after 37 years in the healthcare industry. Donahue has led the hospital since July 2010.
It's not the first time Battey, a vascular surgeon and chairman of the system's board, has served in a CEO role. He stepped in as interim CEO of Piedmont Healthcare when former leader R. Timothy Stack passed away in 2012. He also served in the interim before Kevin Brown was appointed in April 2013. Battey has practiced at Piedmont Atlanta since 1985.
Matthew Trunnell has been named VP and CIO at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle.
Trunnell has worked in life sciences IT for more than 15 years, in both academic and commercial settings. He will begin his role at the cancer center on Aug. 31.
For the past nine years, Trunnell has worked at the Broad Institute at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University, most recently serving as CIO. The institute focuses on innovative approaches to biomedical research. At Fred Hutchinson, he will oversee the organization's efforts to use informatics and information analytics to further its research and precision-medicine efforts.
