Sisters of Charity Health System Welcomes Mark Wiedt to its Business Development Team

CLEVELAND, Feb. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Mark Wiedt will be joining the business development team of Sisters of Charity Health System in Cleveland, Ohio, on March 1 as vice president for Physician Services and CEO of Cuyahoga Physician Network (CPN). 

In these dual roles, Wiedt will provide system-wide leadership in the physician alignment and business development strategies of the health system, and serve as the executive leader for CPN.  He brings a proven track record in successful physician enterprises.  Most recently, Wiedt served as CEO of Premier Physician Centers, a 70-plus multi-specialty group practice in Westlake, Ohio, and one of the largest independent physician groups in Cleveland. 

"This position provided a great opportunity to apply my physician market experience and make a difference in a faith-based environment," said Wiedt. "The mission of the Sisters of Charity Health System and its support of independent physicians make this a good fit for my expertise," he said. Wiedt's wife Christie spent seven years as a nurse in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit at St. Vincent before joining sister hospital St. John Medical Center where she now works in Community Outreach.

His more than 30 years of experience in healthcare and physician group practices brings a well-known leader in physician practice management to the five hospitals within the Sisters of Charity Health System. "Mark brings significant expertise in the areas of operations, budgeting, physician relations, marketing, contract negotiations and compliance," said Sister Judith Ann Karam, CSA, president and CEO of the Sisters of Charity Health System and St. Vincent Charity Medical Center. "We are looking forward to having him as an integral member of our mission-based team as we continue the vital growth of Catholic health services to the communities we serve."

During his more than 10 years at Premier, Wiedt led the organization in executing significant growth and expansion strategies that resulted in operational efficiencies and revenue growth of more than 350 percent. Premier won the Case Western Reserve University Weatherhead 100 award in five of the last six years. Previous to that post, Wiedt served in various leadership roles in hospital administration and imaging services at several area hospitals including Lakewood Hospital, where he last served as vice president of operations.

"I am so pleased to have Mark join our team," said Orlando L. Alvarez, Jr., Senior Vice President of Physician Alignment & Business Development for Sisters of Charity Health System.  "He will play a critical role in our physician engagement strategies in the Greater Cleveland market.  He has an impeccable reputation and a history of positive working relationships with the physician community."

Adnan Tahir, M.D., who previously served as the CEO of CPN will transition into the role of Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of CPN.  Dr. Tahir also serves as the CMO of St. Vincent Charity Medical Center and the Sisters of Charity Health System. Jacki Hawkins will continue in her role as Executive Director of CPN and will report to Mark Wiedt.
