President and CEO,
Advocate Aurora Health
Skogsbergh had been co-CEO with Dr. Nick Turkal since last year’s merger, but this July, the board decided to end the dual-CEO model. Skogsbergh was named president and CEO of Advocate Aurora Health, the nation’s 10th-largest not-for-profit system. Skogsbergh told Modern Healthcare that he and Turkal had encountered a number of redundancies which could be eliminated by moving to a single CEO. He still believes the co-CEO model “was the right decision” in launching the Illinois and Wisconsin-based organization.
