UPMC names Magee-Womens president to run its hospital division
UPMC named the longtime president of Magee-Womens Hospital to run its Hospital and Community Services Division.
Leslie Davis, who has headed Magee-Womens since 2004, succeeds Elizabeth Concordia. Concordia last month was named CEO of the University of Colorado Health System, a job she will start on Sept. 2.
Davis was chosen to lead UPMC's hospital division for her 30 years of experience in hospital operations and work in developing medical services, UPMC said.
“Leslie brings to the position an in-depth understanding of UPMC's continuing transformation to a leading integrated health care delivery system,” CEO Jeffrey Romoff said in a statement. “Leslie has an unwavering commitment to ensure that UPMC continues providing world-class care in all of the communities we serve while supporting our academic mission.”
Magee-Womens, a highly-ranked medical center for gynecological care, delivers about 10,000 babies a year, accounting for 45 percent of Allegheny County births, according to UPMC. It is UPMC's most profitable hospital, according to 2012 fiscal year financial records filed with the state.
Its three-year average profit margin for the 2009 to 2012 fiscal years was 13.5 percent, the highest among UPMC's hospitals, according to data from the Pennsylvania Health Care Cost Containment Council, which tracks hospital cost and quality. Revenue increased $67 million to $441 million during that period.
As hospital division president, Davis will have responsibility for UPMC's largest division, which operates 20 hospitals, has more than 36,000 employees and generates annual operating revenue of $7.4 billion, or about two-thirds of UPMC's total revenue of $11 billion.
Before coming to UPMC, she held executive positions with Graduate Hospital in Philadelphia, Presbyterian Medical Center in Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania Health System.
