To:           University Hospitals Physicians and Employees

From:      Richard A. Hanson
                President, UH Community Hospitals and Ambulatory Network

Date:       February 3, 2017


I am pleased to announce that Peter U. Bergmann, FACHE, has accepted the position of President of University Hospitals Parma Medical Center. He will begin his new role on March 6.

He and his team will advance the hospital’s role as a valued resource for Westside communities with a focus on quality of care, physician recruitment, patient experience, and employee and physician engagement.

Thanks to the hard work of leaders, physicians, nurses, employees and volunteers, UH Parma Medical Center has recently improved patient satisfaction while reducing length of stay. Additionally, the hospital was named one of the 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals in the nation for 2017 by Truven Health Analytics.

Peter comes to UH from Catholic Health System in Buffalo, N.Y., where he served as President and Chief Executive Officer for a two-campus Catholic teaching hospital since 2006. His achievements include developing and implementing business strategies to improve efficiency, enhance patient safety and generate strong financial results.

Peter earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration/Health Planning and Management at Alfred University, Alfred, N.Y., and a Master of Health Administration at Cornell University, Ithaca, N.Y. He is a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives and is active on numerous professional association and community boards.

We look forward to welcoming Peter soon to Northeast Ohio. His collaborative leadership style and relationship-building successes will benefit our patients as we continue to expand and align UH’s Westside service offerings.

Senior leadership and the UH Parma Medical Center Board of Directors would like to thank Kristi Sink, who served as interim President since last year and will remain at UH Parma Medical Center as Chief Operating Officer. Please join us in thanking Kristi for her dedication and expert guidance during this transition period.
