Swedish CEO heads to Atlanta after year on the job

Kevin Brown


From Seattle Times health reporter Carol M. Ostrom:

Kevin Brown, CEO of Swedish Medical Center for just over a year, is leaving to take a new position as CEO of Piedmont Healthcare in Atlanta.

Swedish has named Marcel Loh, who oversees Swedish’s suburban hospitals and community hospital affiliations, as interim chief executive effective today.

Brown, who has been with Swedish since 2000, took over for Dr. Rod Hochman, who moved over to the larger Providence Health & Services system, which affiliated with Swedish in 2012. Hochman is now CEO of Providence, effective today.

Piedmont includes five hospitals and more than 100 outpatient centers, primary care and specialty physician practices.

Before assuming the role of CEO at Swedish, Brown was chief strategic officer, with responsbility for the ambulatory care divisions in Lake Sammamish, Redmond and Mill Creek, as well as Swedish’s hospitals in Ballard and Issaquah.
