PROVIDENCE – Matt Quin has been named president and chief operating officer of Women & Infants Hospital, Care New England announced Wednesday.
Quin succeeds Rick Majzun, who departed the company in April. Majzun was named vice president and chief operating officer of Stanford Children’s Health in Stanford, Calif., in September.
Quin had served as interim chief operating officer for W&I since April, CNE said.
“I am very grateful to Matt for stepping into the interim role earlier this year, providing a steadying hand, working hard to grow and expand a collaborative and collegial relationship with the union, physicians, and everyone who helps to makes Women & Infants Hospital a high-caliber hospital,” said Care New England CEO and President and James E. Fanale.
Quin joined Women and Infants in 2013 and had previously served as director of the surgical and burn trauma intensive care unit at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.
“I am grateful and honored by today’s announcement,” said Quin. “I know there remains significant work ahead with regard to improving finances, delivering higher quality care, improving patient experience, and establishing a culture that is dedicated to significantly improving upon our community engagement, cultural sensitivities, and care equity to provide the best possible experience and clinical outcomes for every patient, every time. I look forward to continuing to build on the long history of exceptional care and service that has helped define this institution.”
CNE said Quin was currently overseeing a “significant financial improvement program through the year fiscal 2020,” including identifying and implementing a growth and access plan. It also said that he is developing a labor and delivery suite model-of-care redesign plan, is establishing a “joint partnership specific to labor relations and is working with department chiefs for an ongoing provider recruitment and retention program.
“Matt has continuously proven his ability to guide and advance the mission of Women & Infants,” added Finale. “From his clinical leadership to administrative oversight, he has shown the focus, energy, and insight needed to navigate this institution in the past, present, and now, the future.”
