Patrick A. Taylor, MD, MBA, leaving as CEO of Holy Cross Hospital

Taylor serves as 5th CEO in the hospital's 64-year history  
September 6, 2019 - Patrick A. Taylor, MD, MBA, President and CEO of Holy Cross Hospital has decided to leave his position, effective October 30, 2019. Over the past 30 years, Dr. Taylor has been dedicated to serving the Holy Cross community.  
"It has been my honor, and I have been blessed, to serve at Holy Cross," said Dr. Taylor. "No words will capture how significant a part of my and my family’s life Holy Cross has been. I have the deepest gratitude to so many people who have supported me and us along the way. The Sisters of Mercy have left such an indelible mark on my life."
Dr. Taylor joined Holy Cross Hospital in 1988 as an emergency medicine physician and served in multiple positions of increasing responsibility such as Executive Director of Medical Affairs for the Holy Cross Medical Group, a multi-specialty employed physician group; Vice President of the Medical Group, Chief Medical Officer, and Chief Operating Officer of Holy Cross Hospital. In 2010, he became President and CEO. 
"In all of Pat's roles, he has remained true to our faith-based mission, supporting our clinicians and colleagues in delivering compassionate, high-quality care across the continuum. We appreciate his leadership and friendship and he will be missed" said Mike Slubowski, President and CEO of Trinity Health, of which Holy Cross Hospital is a member.  "Pat and I will work with the new CEO and the Holy Cross Hospital Board to ensure a smooth transition." 
Slubowski goes on to say: "During Pat's tenure, Holy Cross transformed into an academic teaching medical center in affiliation with the University of Miami, with current residencies in Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Transitional Year and General Surgery. U.S. News and World Report consistently ranks Holy Cross in the top five out of 64 hospitals in South Florida, quality and patient experience ratings have been consistently at upper levels within Trinity Health."
Holy Cross remains one of the most highly respected, trusted and sought-after health partners in the community. The Holy Cross Physician Partners Clinically Integrated Network (CIN) and Super CIN Atlantic Coast Health Network (a novel partnership with Memorial Healthcare) were developed in collaboration with employed and independent physicians. The super CIN is a leader in population health in South Florida.
Under Dr. Taylor's leadership, Holy Cross also launched and completed several new investments to serve the community better. This includes completing the $26 million Moran Challenge (The Jim Moran Heart and Vascular Research Institute); The Phil Smith Neuroscience Institute; Doreen Koenig Blessed Beginnings Maternity Unit; Dorothy Mangurian Comprehensive Women’s Center; and the Patricia R. Guerrieri Pavilion. Holy Cross also developed an affiliation with Massachusetts General Hospital in clinical areas of oncology, cardiovascular and neurosciences and was recognized as a national leader in orthopedic excellence. 
Dr. Taylor has been a long-standing supporter of the South Florida community, serving on numerous non-profit Boards: Catholic Health Services; Broward Partnership for the Homeless; Jack and Jill Children’s Center; The Broward Workshop. He has received a number of recognitions including the 2007 Valor Award, American Diabetes Association; the 2010 Leadership Broward Foundation Leader of the Year Award; the 2015 Broward Partnership James J.
