As we work to rebuild trust with our community and stabilize our teams and programs, we are announcing a few additional leadership transitions that are effective immediately. Dr. Brigitta Mueller, chief patient safety officer and vice president of medical affairs, and Sylvia Ameen, vice president of marketing, communications and culture / physician engagement have resigned from their positions and have our thanks for their service. In addition, Dr. Gerhard Ziemer, who was appointed in August as director of the Heart Institute and chief of cardiovascular surgery, will be leaving us. While Dr. Ziemer is not responsible for the current state of the program, we agree that a fresh start is needed to ensure success for the program. We wish him well in his future endeavors.
