Steward Health Care Appoints Marisela Marrero, M.D., as Regional President for South Florida  

Steward Health Care recently named Marisela Marrero, M.D., as Steward’s first Regional President for the South Florida Region. Dr. Marrero will oversee the five hospitals Steward acquired from Tenet Healthcare Corporation last month, including North Shore Medical Center, Coral Gables Hospital, Hialeah Hospital, Palmetto General Hospital in Miami-Dade and Florida Medical Center in Broward County. 

Dr. Marrero will lead the hospitals’ efforts to respond to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases and expand high-quality, physician-led healthcare in South Florida. In addition to her regional role, Dr. Marrero has served as the new President of Hialeah Hospital since August. 

“Dr. Marrero has a firmly established and impressive track record as a clinician and visionary administrator that makes her uniquely qualified to lead Steward’s South Florida Region,” says Sanjay Shetty, M.D., Steward’s President of North America. “She has a strong understanding of how to deliver exceptional community-based, value-driven care, particularly within underserved, diverse communities. I’m confident that Dr. Marrero will seamlessly partner with our team members and community partners to lead this important region to new heights during these challenging times.”

Dr. Marrero is a Harvard-trained, board-certified emergency room physician who recently served as President of Good Samaritan Medical Center, one of Steward’s largest and most successful Massachusetts hospitals. Originally from Puerto Rico, she has dedicated her career to engaging and partnering with Latino communities to provide vital health information and care. She regularly appears on Spanish-language television to provide expertise on many essential healthcare topics. 

“I am honored and humbled to have the opportunity to lead these outstanding medical teams across the greater Miami region as we address the unique health care needs of the communities and the ongoing COVID-19 surge,” Dr. Marrero says. “I look forward to partnering with our skilled and compassionate providers and community stakeholders to increase investments in our facilities and clinical services in the months and years ahead.” 

In her concurrent role as President of Hialeah Hospital, Dr. Marrero will also lead a team of more than 900 employees directing care at the 378-bed acute care hospital, which has been part of the Hialeah community since 1951.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
