Dr. Babineau seen as leading candidate for Lifespan CEO

June 22, 2012

The Lifespan hospital chain, Rhode Island’s largest private employer, is probably going to announce Monday the appointment of a new CEO to succeed George Vecchione, who is retiring.  While the search process for a new CEO has been done quietly, with no media leaks, several sources in Rhode Island’s tight-knight medical care industry say Dr. Timothy Babineau, a surgeon who has been Rhode Island Hospital’s CEO since 2008, is the leading candidate. Babineau has impressed the state’s medical community in his tenure at RIH, the flagship of the Lifespan chain.

Vecchione has held the job since 1998, when he came to Lifespan from a New York hospital system.
