Posted on Feb 10, 2012
Chuck Prosper has been named the new Chief Executive Officer of Alta Bates Summit Medical Center effective Monday, February 27.
Prosper has served as the medical center’s Chief Operating Officer since October, 2010. He will replace David Bradley, who will assume the position of president of the Sutter Health East Bay Region. Ed Berdick, the region’s first president, will become Senior Vice President for Shared Services at Sutter Health.
“I have great respect and admiration for the excellent care Alta Bates Summit provides to its community,” Prosper said last week. “To be successful in the future, the medical center must find new ways to innovate in the delivery of care and to strengthen partnerships between physicians, employees and our community. I look forward to the challenges ahead and honoring our mission.”
In a memo announcing the management changes, Sutter Health CEO Pat Fry said these changes ensure “a smooth transition of leadership in the East Bay.”
Prosper joined Alta Bates Summit as interim COO in October 2010. Previously, he was Chief Administrative Officer at (former Sutter-affiliated) Marin General Hospital where he had responsibility for all hospital operations and managed the transfer of the hospital from Sutter Health back to its health care district owner. Prosper earlier served as the Assistant Administrator for Ancillary and Support Services at the San Leandro Hospital Campus of Eden Medical Center.
Prosper holds a bachelor’s degree from Cornell University, a master’s degree in Physical Therapy from Columbia University and an MBA from the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley. Prosper’s leadership experience and his personal knowledge of patient care are true assets to Alta Bates Summit.
