Dr. McCabe named to national list of hospital CEOs to know

Upstate University Hospital Chief Executive Officer John McCabe, M.D., has been named to a list of the 130 Hospital and Healthcare System CEOs to Know compiled by a leading healthcare publication.

The list featuring McCabe appears online at Becker's Hospital Review, a bimonthly national publication and e-newsletter that offers information on business of hospitals and health systems.

McCabe was appointed chief executive officer of Upstate University Hospital and senior vice president for hospital affairs of Upstate Medical University in August 2009. Highlights of his 22-year career at Upstate include the development of an Emergency Medicine residency training program, overseeing the opening and transition of patients into the Upstate University Hospital's East Tower and Golisano Children's Hospital, the development and opening of a mass casualty unit and upgraded infirmary at the New York State Fairgrounds, the development of an emergency medicine simulation center for training medical residents and the expansion of the hospital's Emergency Room.

McCabe's national leadership positions include service as chair of the board of directors of the American Board of Medical Specialties, the organization that oversees the certification of physician specialists in the United States.

This isn't the first time Becker's has recognized McCabe: In September 2009, McCabe was named one of the top 25 movers and shakers in the hospital industry.
