Jeffrey H. Liebman has been selected as the new chief executive officer for Methodist University Hospital. A seasoned executive with more than 25 years of healthcare leadership experience, Liebman currently serves as president of the Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton, Massachusetts. He was selected through a very thorough national search which included input from a cross section of physicians and Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare senior leaders. Liebman will take the reins of Methodist University Hospital February 24.
“Jeff is an excellent fit with our Power of One mission-driven culture, having devoted his career to enhancing patient satisfaction and clinical quality,” said MLH?Executive Vice President and COO Michael Ugwueke. “He has a strong commitment to financial stewardship, and throughout his career he has built a track record of increasing market share, recruiting and retaining outstanding physicians and improving financial performance.”
In addition to hospital leadership experience, Liebman also has experience with large physician practices, including Affiliated Physicians Group, a community-based Harvard primary care network that he grew from 28 to 220 physicians.
Liebman earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Queens College in New York, a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Pennsylvania and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Chicago.
In his role as Methodist University Hospital CEO, Liebman will provide strategic and operational leadership for Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare’s flagship hospital, build strong collaborative relationships with the medical staff, strengthen Methodist’s affiliation with the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, and facilitate improvements in patient-and family-centered care, clinical quality and financial performance.
