UCSF Health

Dear UCSF Community,

On Tuesday, we welcomed Suresh Gunasekaran as President and CEO of UCSF Health.

In the coming days and weeks, he will be deeply immersed in learning about our organization and the people who comprise it. Suresh will be visiting clinical and non-clinical locations to meet as many of our staff and faculty as possible.

Meanwhile, we send this introductory video in which Suresh shares his thoughts on a number of topics, including why he chose UCSF Health, his commitment to patients, the well-being of our workforce, and teamwork.

I encourage you to scroll to the bottom of his bio page, which includes some fun facts that will help us get to know him better.

You also can read more about his background in this story.

Suresh brings an impressive track record of health care leadership, and I am looking forward to working with him as our nationally recognized health system continues to evolve.
