Boston, MA – Following an extensive national search, Andrew Resnick, MD, MBA, has been named Brigham Health’s chief quality officer and senior vice president, starting Oct. 28.
“It is clear that Andrew’s devotion to quality, safety and exceptional patient care, combined with his extensive physician leadership experience and operational expertise, make him an excellent fit for this vitally important role,” said Sunny Eappen, MD, MBA, chief medical officer of Brigham Health.
Resnick currently serves as chief medical officer of Froedtert Hospital (FH), associate dean of Clinical Affairs Adult Practice and associate professor, General Surgery at The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW), and previously served as chief quality officer at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center.
Throughout his career, Resnick has made a profound impact on quality and safety at the institutions where he’s served. He has extensive experience creating high-quality, patient-centered care delivery systems that are not only cost effective for hospitals, providers, payers and patients, but also provide a patient-focused experience.
“I am incredibly honored to join Brigham Health,” said Resnick. “I’m thrilled to partner with such a superbly talented team and work together on taking what’s already a world-class system to the next level — with the best quality, best patient experience, and most effective and compassionate care. I simply cannot wait to get started.”
Resnick graduated from Dartmouth College and Yale University School of Medicine. He completed a surgical residency at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, and earned an MBA at The Wharton School.
Resnick succeeds Allen Kachalia, MD, JD, who departed the Brigham last fall to serve as senior vice president for Patient Safety and Quality and director of the Armstrong Institute at Johns Hopkins Medicine.
