He will assume the new role effective immediately, succeeding Louise Urban, who was appointed as Senior Vice President of Operations for AHN in May.

Dr. Park is a long-time AHN cardiothoracic surgeon, and served as Medical Director of the Cardiovascular Institute at Jefferson. For the past six years, he has also served as Jefferson’s Chief Medical Officer, leading the hospital’s medical staff and clinical operations, ensuring the highest standards of patients care quality and safety at the hospital and its affiliated facilities across the south hills region.

Dr. Park has been a key member of the clinical leadership team at Jefferson Hospital over the last decade, and has played an important role in the hospital’s success since its 2013 affiliation with Allegheny Health Network. Under his leadership, the quality of Jefferson’s cardiac program and medical services overall has received numerous accreditations and honors, including the most recent A grade for safety by the Leapfrog group.

“For many years, I have been privileged to part of an extraordinary culture of caring and compassion at Jefferson Hospital that makes a difference every day in the health and well-being of the patients and communities we serve,” Dr. Park said. “Both Jefferson and Canonsburg Hospital are vital community resources, and I am excited about the opportunity to help further advance their broader missions in this new leadership role.”

Jefferson is a 341-bed tertiary care hospital located in Jefferson Hills, Pa.; Canonsburg is a 104-bed community hospital located in Canonsburg, Pa.
Dr. Park lives in Upper St. Clair and is a life-long South Hills resident. He comes from a family of doctors – his father was a prominent heart surgeon in the greater Pittsburgh region, his mother was a radiologist, his brother is a heart surgeon and his sister is a neonatologist. Dr. Park also will continue his clinical practice at Jefferson Hospital in addition to assuming the President role.
