Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and Cedars-Sinai Health System announced Tuesday that Peter Slavin, M.D., will assume the roles of president and CEO for both organizations starting October 1.

Previously, Slavin served as the president of Massachusetts General Hospital from 2003 to 2021, where he spearheaded significant expansions in clinical care, research funding, scientific contributions, and workforce development.

Rick Pollack, President and CEO of the American Hospital Association (AHA), praised Slavin’s dedication to enhancing health access, wellness, and health equity. Under Slavin’s leadership, Mass General earned national recognition for its community health initiatives and was awarded the AHA’s inaugural Equity of Care Award in 2014.

Slavin will succeed Tom Priselac, who is retiring after 30 years as president and CEO and 45 years of total service at Cedars-Sinai.

Pollack commended Priselac’s transformative leadership and longstanding commitment to the hospital’s mission in clinical care, research, education, and community engagement. Priselac’s tenure included significant contributions during pivotal moments in U.S. healthcare history.

I hope he gets that emergency room figured out. Seven-hour wait times is unacceptable.

Emergency rooms are last-resort medical facilities aside from life-threatening situations like a heart attack or stroke and usually for those without insurance. Urgent care is better for almost anything else.
