RWJBarnabas promotes series of executives

RWJBarnabas Health made a series of changes and transitions within its senior leadership team, the health system said in a news release.

The move comes less than a year after RWJBH announced a “strategic realignment” that included multiple executive promotions and changes to the health system’s operations and management.

“To further build upon our current success, we must continually assess how we are structured and ensure we have the best leadership in every role,” CEO Barry Ostrowsky said in a statement released Thursday.

The executive promotions include:

  • Paul Alexander, executive vice president and chief equity and transformation officer. In his new role, Alexander will oversee RWJBarnabas Health’s Social Impact and Community Investment practice.
  • Nancy Holecek, executive vice president and chief nursing officer. In her new role, Holecek will oversee more than 11,000 nursing professionals and lead the system’s nursing initiatives in strategic planning, fiscal decisions, patient satisfaction, care coordination and quality.
  • Gail Kosyla, executive vice president of system financial operations. In her new role, Kosyla will oversee finances for the medical group, as well as treasury operations.
  • Indu Lew, executive vice president and chief pharmacy officer. Lew will oversee the system’s pharmaceutical supply chain in her new role.
  • DeAnna Minus-Vincent, executive vice president and chief social justice and accountability officer. In her new role, Minus-Vincent will work to advance the company’s Ending Racism Together initiative.
  • Trina Parks, executive vice president and chief corporate diversity and inclusion officer. In her new role, Parks will support the company’s efforts to recruit and develop diverse talent.
  • Eileen Urban, executive vice president of treasury and chief investment officer. Urban had retired from her position as chief investment officer earlier in the year.

“These executives have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to our mission of delivering world class patient care to communities across the state of New Jersey,” Ostrowsky said. “I am proud of their accomplishments and eager to move forward with this team of diverse leaders who are each dedicated to excellence in their respective fields.”
