HACKENSACK, N.J. -- Hackensack University Health Network named Ihor S. Sawczuk, M.D., FACS the new president of Hackensack University Medical Center.
Sawczuk will transition from his current role as executive vice president and chief medical officer.
“For 15 years, HackensackUMC has been fortunate to have Dr. Sawczuk as not only a physician – but as one of our most well-respected executive leaders,” CEO Robert Garrett said in a statement. “His various roles—as executive vice president, chief medical officer, vice president of Academic Affairs and chairman of the Department of Urology—are a direct reflection of his influence and demonstrated leadership within our medical center and beyond.”
Sawczuk began his time with HackensackUMC in 2001 as chairperson of the Department of Urology. Since then, he has helped guide the medical center on a path of clinical, research and academic excellence. His emphasis on cutting-edge technology has elevated the Department of Urology to become one of the leading programs in the country.
During his tenure as chief academic officer, his commitment to academic advancement was evident in: his leadership role in the creation of the upcoming school of medicine with Seton Hall University, and the oversight of HackensackUMC’s affiliation agreements with Georgetown University School of Medicine and Stevens Institute of Technology.
Sawczuk will assume his new role on April 4.
