The AHA Board of Trustees has selected as its chair-elect designate Brian Gragnolati, president and CEO of Atlantic Health System in Morristown, NJ. He will assume the AHA chairmanship in 2019. Before joining Atlantic Health System in 2015, Gragnolati was senior vice president, community division, at Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore. He currently serves on several AHA board committees, is past chair of the association’s Metropolitan Hospitals Governing Council, and received the AHA’s 2015 Partnership for Action Grassroots Champion Award for his advocacy on behalf of patients and hospitals. “More than ever, now is a critically important and exciting time to be a leader in the health care field as we drive the transformation of care in America,” Gragnolati said. “I look forward to working with the AHA’s members across the country in support of the association’s mission to advance the health of individuals and communities.”
