Tawam Hospital, a UAE joint commission international (JCI)-accredited health care facility based in Abu Dhabi, has named Gregory F. Schaffer as its new chief executive officer.

Tawam Hospital is managed by Johns Hopkins Medicine International and is owned and operated by Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) which is responsible for the curative activities of all public hospitals and clinics in Abu Dhabi.

Gregory Schaffer has more than 30 of years of health care leadership experience. A Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives (FACHE), Schaffer served as president and chief executive officer of Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, Baltimore for 10 years, a Tawam statement said.

Harris Benny, JHI chief executive officer, said: "Our colleague Greg Schaffer is an extremely experienced hospital executive and has an outstanding track record as a passionate health care leader and a talented innovator."

"We believe that this appointment will help to maintain and enhance the hospital's position as one of the premier health care facilities in the region and will create new opportunities for the hospital's growth and further development," he added.

Carl Vincent Stanifer, chief executive officer of SEHA, said: "Greg's track record is one to which any healthcare executive should aspire. He comes from a truly great background and as Chief Executive Officer he will add tremendous value to Tawam."

"Greg's strategic skills and his proven ability to analyze a situation, provide solutions and steer the hospital in the best direction were very much a part of why Tawam wanted to bring him on board," Stanifer added.

On his appointment, Schaffer said: "I have known the Johns Hopkins brand and philosophy for many years. It is a wonderful opportunity to be able to enjoy a new cultural experience and bring Hopkins expertise and knowledge to the emirates."

"Tawam has a well-deserved reputation for being one of the region's leaders in health care delivery. We will do our best to help Tawam maintain and expand its important role," he added.- TradeArabia News Service
