Cedar Rapids — Mercy Medical Center has named Dr. Timothy Quinn as its next president and CEO.
The family medicine physician, who has been the executive vice president and chief of clinical operations since 2012, will step into the top leadership position effective Jan. 1, 2023.
Officials at the 424-bed hospital in Cedar Rapids announced their selection on Thursday.
“Through our planning process, we have identified an exceptionally qualified and experienced leader who knows and understands our legacy and can also navigate Mercy through the ever challenging future of health care,’” Al Ruffalo, chairman of the MercyCare Service Corp. board of trustees, said in a statement.
“I can think of no one more prepared than Dr. Quinn; he truly embodies ‘the Mercy Touch.’”
Dr. Quinn will replace Timothy Charles, who plans to retire at the end of this year after 19 years at Mercy Medical.
“Having worked closely with him for many years, I have complete confidence in his ability to build on Mercy’s success,” Charles said in the statement. “Of greatest importance, I am assured of his dedication to the mission of Mercy and the legacy of the Sisters of Mercy.”
Quinn received his undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Iowa and completed a residency in family medicine with the Cedar Rapids Medical Education Foundation.
He joined MercyCare Community Physicians in 2005 as a family practice physician.
In 2009, he was named president of MercyCare Community Physicians before taking on his current role as executive vice president and chief of clinical operations three years later.
“I am excited about what is ahead for Mercy and our community; we have a number of initiatives planned or underway that will pave the way for Mercy to continue to provide innovative health care for generations to come,” Quinn said.
