Partners executive to lead New York foundation
By Elizabeth Cooney, Globe Correspondent
Dr. George E. Thibault (left), a leader at Partners HealthCare hospitals and Harvard Medical School, is leaving Boston to become president of a New York foundation devoted to improving health care.
"Itís a very exciting opportunity to influence medical education nationally," Thibault said in an interview. "These are things that Iíve been interested in all my career, but now I can do them on a national scale."
Thibault, 63, had previously been chief medical officer at Brigham and Women's Hospital and chief of medical services at Brockton/West Roxbury VA Medical Center. Earlier in his career he was the first director of the Medical Practices Evaluation Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital and director of the medical intensive care unit and coronary care unit at MGH.
"The integrity, wisdom, and experience that George has brought to this position have allowed him to play a very important 'honest broker' role in working with physicians across the Partners system," Partners president and CEO Dr. James J. Mongan said in a message to staff today. "During George's tenure as Vice President of Clinical Affairs, he has improved physician relationships and cooperation across Partners."
