UCSF, John Muir joint venture recruits former Sutter executive as CEO
San Francisco Business Times

UCSF Medical Center and Walnut Creek’s John Muir Health have named former Sutter Health executive Chris Willrich as CEO for their joint-venture development company, called Bay Health. The development company is distinct from a related health network that the two organizations are forming and that got its inaugural boss a few months ago. The two hospital and health care organizations announced a strategic affiliation in mid-March, as reported first by the Business Times. But each remains independent in terms of ownership.
