CLEVELAND – Cleveland Clinic’s Dr. Brian Donley, chief of staff and chief of clinical operations, has been appointed CEO of Cleveland Clinic London, with his duties effective immediately.
Donley will continue to serve his duties in Cleveland as well, until his successor is named, commuting between Cleveland and the new London healthcare facility.
The clinic in London, at 33 Grosvenor Place, near Buckingham Palace, is slated to open in 2020.
“It has been a great privilege to lead Cleveland Clinic’s remarkable medical staff and clinical operations team for the past three years,” Donley said in a news release. “I’m confident in our collective ability to introduce our unique model of care into the London healthcare landscape. Our mission, vision and values translate well to all areas of the globe.”
Since joining Cleveland Clinic as an orthopedic surgeon in 1986, Donley has held numerous leadership positions within the health system, including president of regional hospitals and family health centers. He also is a professor of surgery in the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine.
“Brian’s leadership experience and his success as an educator and innovator make him exceptionally qualified to take on this important new role,” said Dr. Tom Mihaljevic, Cleveland Clinic CEO and President. “His deep understanding of Cleveland Clinic’s operations and culture will enable him to bring this vision to life, offering Londoners a new model of patient care that is innovative, research-based, and physician-led.”
The new hospital is a six-story, 198,000-square-foot building, and will have 205-beds; eight operating rooms; a full imaging suite; endoscopy and catheterization labs; day case rooms for surgery; and a full neurological suite with rehabilitation. The facility will offer specialty services focusing on general surgery, cardiology and neurology.
The Cleveland Clinic’s first facility in London, will add another international location to a health system that includes a 165-acre main campus near downtown Cleveland, nine regional hospitals throughout Northeast Ohio, and facilities in Weston, Fla.; Las Vegas; Toronto; and Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
