I am very pleased to announce the appointment of John Jenrette, MD, as executive vice president, Medical Network. Dr. Jenrette will be joining Cedars-Sinai on March 14, 2016.

Dr. Jenrette is currently the senior vice president of Sharp HealthCare and chief executive officer of Sharp Community Medical Group in San Diego. In that role, he has served as a highly regarded member of the Sharp HealthCare System executive team, helping to shape the system's overall strategy and responsible for the leadership, growth and operations of the Sharp Community Medical Group Management Services Organization serving over 1,000 physicians in foundation, group practice and IPA models with over $300 million in revenue.

Over much of the past 30 years, Dr. Jenrette has served in various management and leadership roles, all of which have focused on meeting the needs of the patient first and foremost. He has developed a mix of exceptional executive leadership skills; a deep and broad understanding of the healthcare industry, physician practice and the physician perspective; and strong communication and relationship-building skills. Utilizing these strengths, he has demonstrated the ability to align the interests of diverse stakeholders. He is also a recognized leader in the healthcare industry. Among other California and national entities with which he has been active, he currently serves on the board of directors of the California Association of Physician Groups, which he chaired from 2012-2014.

Following residency, he completed a family medicine geriatric fellowship at the East Carolina University School of Medicine. He began his management career as program director of the Family Practice Residency for the Northeastern Ohio College of Medicine.

The continued growth and expansion of the Medical Network is vital to the realization of Cedars-Sinai's mission and strategic vision as we expand our services to provide patients with convenient access to our physicians and a healthcare team committed to provide high value, compassionate care. Dr. Jenrette's experience, leadership, vision and passion for his profession and the patients we serve will optimize our ability to live that mission and vision.
