Longtime Cedars-Sinai President and CEO Thomas Priselac will retire after a successor is named and brought onboard, the nonprofit health system said Wednesday.
Cedars-Sinai did not provide details on the expected timeline for the search.
Priselac was named president and CEO of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles in 1994 and the subsequent Cedars-Sinai Health System. He joined Cedars-Sinai more than 40 years ago, starting as an assistant administrator.
Under Priselac's leadership, Cedars-Sinai grew from a regional hospital to a well-known academic health system, growing its focus on medical research and education. It has expanded its footprint across the Los Angeles region through its 2015 acquisition of Marina del Rey Hospital and joint ventures with Providence Cedars-Sinai Tarzana Medical Center and California Rehabilitation Institute.
The system also has affiliations with Torrance, California-based Torrance Memorial Health and Pasadena, California-based Huntington Health.
Priselac was not immediately made available for an interview Wednesday.
