“I am proud of the opportunity to lead an exceptional team at Jersey City Medical Center and look forward to continuing to build on its solid foundation,” Prilutsky said in a statement. “As a critical part of the RWJBH system, Jersey City Medical Center will undergo tremendous growth in the next five years — with significant enhancements to clinical services and the transformation of the hospital campus — to provide the highest quality of health care to the most diverse community in the nation.”
Meanwhile, Scott will lead population health, strategic initiatives and business development efforts for the RWJBarnabas system. For the last year, he served as executive vice president of healthcare transformation for RWJBarnabas, while also holding his post atop JCMC.
“For the past two years, Michael and I have been working side by side leading the operations and the incredible team at Jersey City Medical Center,” Scott said in a statement. “We expect a seamless transition, as Michael has been managing the day-to-day operations for some time.
“Michael has proven himself to be a terrific leader, colleague and friend.”
