Edward Grab, a national leader in managing healthcare delivery systems at academic medical centers, has been named the new chief operating officer of Weill Cornell Medicine's Physician Organization.
In his new role, Grab will oversee the ever-expanding physician organization, which includes Weill Cornell Medicine's Physician Network and Weill Cornell's Accountable Care Organization. The physician organization encompasses hundreds of employees across multiple practice sites, with more set to open in this year.
Before joining Weill Cornell Medicine, Grab was the executive vice president and chief operating officer of the Harvard Medical Faculty Physicians at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. Prior to that role, which he assumed in 2008, he held top executive positions at the Huntsville Hospital Health System in Alabama, the University of Connecticut Health Center and the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
Grab's recruitment is among several leadership changes in Weill Cornell Medicine's Physician Organization, all made to ensure that New Yorkers can continue to connect with a network of exceptional physicians in this evolving healthcare environment. Dr. Daniel M. Knowles was promoted from chief medical officer to president and CEO; Dr. Michael G. Stewart was named his successor.
