CLEVELAND, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dr. Adnan H. Tahir has been named chief medical officer of the Sisters of Charity Health System in addition to his duties as chief medical officer at St. Vincent Charity Hospital. In this new role, Tahir, board certified in internal medicine, will oversee the System Quality Performance and Patient Safety Plans, promote service excellence philosophies and behaviors throughout the System, and provide medical leadership in promoting best practices in clinical care, quality and safety.

"The Sisters of Charity Health System is very pleased to have Dr. Tahir as its System Chief Medical Officer. Along with mission, there is nothing as critical as quality and patient safety," said Sister Judith Ann Karam, CSA, president and CEO of Sisters of Charity Health System and St. Vincent Charity Hospital.

"One of my top priorities is to learn about all the good things each facility is doing and to share that information across the System," said Tahir. "A lot of good work is getting done at our organization and we should certainly share that knowledge and those experiences with each other."

Tahir will provide leadership in all aspects of medical affairs with particular emphasis on giving oversight to the credentialing process, patient safety efforts, physician leadership development, clinical performance improvement, clinical care quality and standards, and medical staff strategies.

"Adnan Tahir demonstrates each day his passion for quality. His outstanding service in leading the quality initiative at St Vincent will also be used for the System working with the CMOs of all the hospitals and Regina Health Center. I am so pleased he will continue as CMO of both St Vincent and the System," said Karam.

He will be charged with tracking the effectiveness of clinical care through continuous quality improvement, benchmarking and qualitative data measurement of physician performance, resource utilization and patient care outcomes. As a member of the Information Systems Steering Committee, Tahir represents the needs of the physician community and serving as an advocate in promoting IS in the clinical setting.

About the Sisters of Charity Health System

The Sisters of Charity Health System was established in 1982 as the parent corporation for the sponsored ministries of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine in Ohio and South Carolina. In 1999, Sisters of Charity Health System formed two Ohio not-for-profit corporations with University Hospitals to equally own and operate St. John West Shore Hospital, St. Vincent Charity Hospital, Mercy Medical Center, Cuyahoga Physician Network and West Shore Primary Care. Through this equal ownership, the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine continue their legacy of high quality, compassionate care that began at the time of the founding of these organizations.

The Sisters of Charity Health System is the sole sponsor of Sisters of Charity Providence Hospitals, a leading cardiovascular center in South Carolina, which includes Providence Hospital/Providence Heart Institute and Providence Hospital Northeast in Columbia, South Carolina. The organization also oversees three grantmaking foundations located in Cleveland and Canton, Ohio, and Columbia, S.C. Each foundation sponsors significant community initiatives and collaborations that address causes and consequences of poverty.

Other health and human services and education-related organizations within the Sisters of Charity Health System include Cleveland's Joseph's Home, a unique residential care center for homeless men, Canton's Early Childhood Resource Center for people working in childcare in all settings; and Healthy Learners, a South Carolina health care resource for children from low-income families. The Sisters of Charity Health System also provides residential eldercare services at Regina Health Center in Richfield, Ohio, and Light of Hearts Villa in Bedford, Ohio. Light of Hearts Villa is jointly sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati.
