Major American Health Network shakes up leadership

Financially strained Allegheny Health Network announced a leadership overhaul Tuesday that places physicians at the helm of its North Side and Monroeville hospitals.

The changes mark a growing industry belief that leaders who already live in the world of medicine can better command hospital operations, said AHN Chief Medical Officer Dr. Tony Farah, a cardiologist.

“This is not all about money,” Farah said. “Nobody knows better than clinicians what the needs of the patients truly are. If you focus on quality and safety, the finances will follow.”
