Cardiovascular Care Group appoints CEO

Former VUMC associate vice chancellor to replace Jacobson

Cardiovascular Care Group has appointed Warren Beck its new chief executive officer.

Beck (pictured) replaces longtime local health care industry leader Dr. Harry Jacobson, who will remain with CCG and retain his title of chairman of the board. Beck will be responsible for "developing, executing and sustaining strategic initiatives" related to the company’s future growth and profitability, according to a statement provided by CCG officials and linked here.

Beck joins CCG after a short stint with MedCare Investments, the venture capital investment fund chaired by Jacobson that focuses on locally based early-stage companies. Beck served about 28 years as associate vice chancellor for health affairs and senior vice president for finance at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

“Cardiovascular Care Group is adding a key leader with a track record of clinical and financial successes innovating healthcare delivery systems,” Jacobson said in a release.

CCG is a specialty hospital operator whose primary focus is the care of patients with cardiovascular disease.
