Gino Santorio, the president and CEO at Broward Health, is stepping down after a successful tenure to join Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach as the new president and CEO. Santorio gave his last major interview in his Broward Health role to SFBW here.
“The decision to leave Broward Health did not come easily, but relocating to Miami will bring us closer to family,” says Santorio. “Broward Health is well positioned with experienced leaders and dedicated caregivers who will continue the success of the system. I will forever be in awe of the passion displayed by the Broward Health team and applaud the system’s achievements as we all champion the health of the South Florida community.”
“I extend my congratulations to Mr. Santorio and his family on the opportunity to relocate and serve the Miami community,” says Nancy Gregoire, chair of the North Broward Hospital District Board of Commissioners. “Thanks to Mr. Santorio’s leadership, our health system is well positioned to continue moving healthcare forward for the betterment of our community.”
Santorio will become CEO of Mount Sinai Medical Center of Greater Miami. He will succeed Steven Sonenreich, who is leaving the position after 19 years but will stay on as a consultant.
“Against an arduous backdrop of challenges inclusive of a global pandemic, a corporate integrity agreement and historical organizational instability, we have prevailed and remain poised for continued success,” Santorio wrote in his resignation letter.
