Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Hamilton announced it has named a new president and chief executive officer.

Richard Freeman will succeed Anthony “Skip” Cimino, who is stepping down after five years as president and 26 years with Robert Wood Johnson.

Before joining RWJ Hamilton, Freeman served as president of Mountainside and Pascack Valley hospitals, integrating them into the Hackensack University Health Network. He has more than 30 years of experience as either a chief executive officer or chief operating officer, spending most of his career with National Medical Enterprises and Tenet Healthcare.

“Richard Freeman is the right leader at the right time for RWJ Hamilton,” J. Lynne Cannon, chairman of the hospital’s board of directors, said in a news release. “His success in driving growth, quality, financial and service initiatives gives us confidence that he will shape the future for RWJ Hamilton and take us forward.”

Freeman started in his new job on Monday, RWJ Hamilton said.

“Now is an unprecedented time of change in healthcare, when the standards for high-quality, high-value care are at their height,” he said in the release. “RWJ Hamilton’s track record impressed me as one that provides a strong foundation upon which to grow and serve this community as healthcare continues to evolve.”
