Lifespan has a new CEO.
John Fernandez takes over for Timothy Babineau, who announced his retirement after a failed merger between Lifespan and Care New England.
“These are unprecedented times in healthcare, and we need a transformative leader who has the vision and expertise to guide Lifespan’s future strategic direction,” said Lawrence A. Aubin, Sr., chairman of Lifespan’s board of directors.
“All the candidates were exceptional and came from major academic medical centers in extremely competitive markets, but John Fernandez stood out as the leader that Lifespan needs during this time.”
Fernandez is currently the President of Mass Eye and Ear.
He will take over early next year.
