Van Grinsven resigns as CEO of Cancer Treament Centers of America

The company said van Grinsven was departing to pursue other interests.

Van Grinsven, who was profiled in an August cover story in SFBW, had extensive experience in the hospitality field before joining the health care field as president and CEO of a hospital in the Detroit area Henry Ford Health System. He became president and CEO of CTCA in 2013.

CTCA said Chief Operating Officer Steve Mackin and  CTCA at Southeastern Regional Medical Center CEO Anne Meisner will jointly serve in a new office of the president until a successor is named.

“Gerard brought to CTCA a leadership style and level of business acumen that accelerated our growth at a time when marketplace realities were challenging the way we deliver our Mother Standard” of care to the patients and families we are privileged to serve,” said Richard J Stephenson, CTCA’s chairman and founder. “He helped clarify our vision for how we will extend the delivery of patient-empowered care when, where and how our patients need it most in both new and innovative ways. We thank him for his leadership and wish him much success in the years ahead.”

Under van Grinsven’s leadership, CTCA launched a new medicine and science division, led by internationally renowned medical oncologist, Dr. Maurie Markman, which is bringing together leading physicians in their respective cancer specialties to establish new centers of clinical excellence within CTCA, the company said. The company also developed a five-year model for future growth as part of an initiative that involved the entire organization.

CTCA serves patients from around the world at its hospitals in Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Tulsa.

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.
