San Francisco Business Times

John Muir Health, which operates major hospitals in Walnut Creek and Concord, said late Monday it named Irving Pike, M.D., as its first chief medical officer. The step, effective immediately, appears to be a sign of the nonprofit hospital system’s increased interest in tighter links to its affiliated physicians, as health reform and other factors put pressure on hospitals and physicians nationwide to form closer business and clinical ties.
