UR Medicine | Noyes Health names new CEO | Local News
DANSVILLE – J. Chad Teeters will become the new president and CEO at Noyes Memorial Hospital in Dansville on May 1.
He takes over for current President and CEO Amy Pollard, who will retired in April after a decade as the hospital’s chief executive.
The announcement of the new CEO was first made to staff by Pollard on Thursday morning.
Teeeters is a chief of UR Medicine | Highland Hospital’s Cardiology Division from 2009 to 2020, and also has served for three years as executive medical director for Accountable Health Partners (AHP), a clinically integrated network of hospitals, University of Rochester medical faculty and community physicians.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Teeters has been key in developing AHP’s role as a source of information and support for health care providers across the 10-county Finger Lakes Region. Along with frequent “fireside chats” to keep practices throughout the region informed, he has led
efforts to secure personal protective equipment for AHP members, assisted practices with technology for the transition to telehealth, and helped to facilitate access to COVID vaccinations for providers and their staffs. Teeeters has also supported efforts to help providers remain solvent during the pandemic.
In addition to his new role at Noyes president and CEO, Teeters will devote a half-day each week to providing patient care at Finger Lakes Cardiology Group in Geneseo. He also will continue to serve providers as AHP’s executive medical director.
“Given our strategic goals, which include expanding services throughout the communities we serve, Dr. Teeters was clearly the best candidate to successfully lead Noyes,” said Noyes Health Board Chair James Culbertson. “His energy and enthusiasm were palpable during his interview. I know I speak for the Board when I say we are looking forward to working with him.”
Steven I. Goldstein, senior vice president of the University of Rochester Medical Center, called Teeters a “highly regard clinician and administrator” and said his experience “has prepared him well to lead Noyes into the future.”
“His unique blend of clinical and leadership experience provides the skills he needs to build on Amy’s legacy and usher in a new era of
growth and success for Noyes as part of the UR Medicine health system,” Goldstein said.
Nicholas H. Apostoleris, chief executive officer of Tri-County Family Medicine, called the appointment of Teeters excellent news for the region.
“Though he is just entering the middle of his career, Chad Teeters has already established himself as a cardiologist who is expert not only clinically, but also in the complexities of the business side of modern medicine,” Apostoleris said. “He has the rare talent of being able to communicate medical and public health information effectively to clinical and general audiences. I have enjoyed collaborating with Dr. Teeters through his role with AHP and I’m pleased to continue working with him toward our mutual goal of improving the health of our communities.”
Reporter Brendan McDonough will have much more on the appointment of Teeters coming up in the March 25, edition of the Livingston County News.
