Memorial Hermann Health System has announced Paul O’Sullivan as SVP and CEO of Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital. O’Sullivan will also continue to serve as SVP and CEO of Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center.
O’Sullivan succeeds SVP and CEO Susan Jadlowski who, after 11 years with Memorial Hermann, will be leaving the organization in December. Jadlowski will remain with Memorial Hermann working in the corporate offices on special projects through the end of the year.
“Paul will be an outstanding addition to the Greater Heights family in leading the Campus’ continued commitment to providing high-quality, safe, patient-centered care,” said Erin Asprec, EVP of Acute Care Services for Memorial Hermann. “Having a single leader for Memorial Hermann Greater Heights and Memorial Hermann Memorial City – both of which were just ranked as two of the Top 10 best hospitals in Texas by U.S. News and World Report – will allow for more opportunities for synergy between the two campuses when it comes to caring for the residents of the Houston metro area.”
O’Sullivan has held the position of SVP and CEO of Memorial Hermann Memorial City since April 2015.
O’Sullivan previously held the title of CEO of Memorial Hermann Heart & Vascular Institute-Texas Medical Center and was the leader of the System’s Heart & Vascular service line, where he led the development and execution of strategies that firmly established Memorial Hermann as the Heart & Vascular market leader. In partnership with medical staff leaders, he developed new programs to create a full-spectrum of services and championed the development of multi-disciplinary teams to drive service development, delivery of high reliability care and operational improvement.
“I am honored and excited for the opportunity to lead the incredible team at Memorial Hermann Greater Heights,” said O’Sullivan. “Greater Heights has a 50-plus-year legacy in Houston of delivering exceptional patient care and service, and I look forward to continuing the momentum the team there has successfully built in this tight-knit community.”
O’Sullivan is a fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives and a board member of the Houston chapter of the American Heart Association. He earned a bachelor’s degree in public administration from the Whittaker School of Government at the Institute of Public Administration in Ireland and received a master’s degree in economics from the University of Dublin, Trinity College.
