After 15 months as interim chief executive officer at Temple University Hospital, Sandra L. Gomberg officially has the job.
The hospital announced today that she is now CEO and president.
Gomberg, a 47-year-old nurse, led the hospital during the strike of 1,500 nurses and allied professionals earlier this spring. She will be in charge of the North Philadelphia hospital, its Episcopal Campus, the Northeastern Ambulatory Care Center, the bone marrow transplant program at Jeanes Hospital and the Temple Transport Team.
A graduate of Villanova University College of Nursing, Gomberg started work in the pediatric intensive-care unit at Albert Einstein Medical Center. She joined Temple in 1997 to help its now-defunct children's hospital get started. - Stacey Burling
