Stanford Health Care names new CEO

David Entwistle


David Entwistle has been named the new president and chief executive officer of Stanford Health Care, effective July 5. The chief executive officer at University of Utah Hospitals & Clinics since 2007, Entwistle will succeed Mariann Byerwalter, who has served as interim president and CEO since January 2016.

“David Entwistle has a distinguished record of accomplishment and dedication to the critically important role of academic medical centers in advancing human health,” said John Levin, chair of the board of Stanford Health Care. “As we plan for the opening of the new Stanford Hospital in 2018 and continue to innovate across the entire continuum of care, his commitment to combining the highest levels of quality with outstanding patient experience will help achieve an inspiring vision for the future.”

As the only academic medical center in a region that includes Utah and five surrounding states, University of Utah Hospitals & Clinics comprises 1,100 board-certified physicians who staff four university hospitals, 10 community clinics and several specialty centers.

“We are on the brink of an amazing transformation in how we approach health,” said Lloyd Minor, MD, dean of the School of Medicine. “David Entwistle is a proven leader who will collaborate effectively with Stanford Medicine physicians and with all our partners as we pursue the tremendous potential of the biomedical revolution in Precision Health to predict, prevent and treat disease as never before.”

Before joining the Utah system, Entwistle served as senior vice president and chief operating officer, as well as senior vice president of operations, for University of Wisconsin Hospital & Clinics. Previously he was vice president of professional services and joint venture operations at City of Hope National Medical Center, where he also served as president and chief executive officer for oncology management services.

“At this transformative time in health care, Stanford continues to raise the bar,” Entwistle said. “I am thrilled to be joining a premier institution on the leading edge of discovery, education and clinical care. I look forward to working with the Stanford Health Care board, executive team, physicians and staff, as well as with partners at Stanford School of Medicine and Stanford Children’s Health, to provide outstanding care and outcomes matched by exemplary patient experience.”
