We are pleased to announce that Robert (“Bob”) Michalski has been named Vice President/Chief Compliance and Privacy Officer at UF Health. Bob, former vice president and chief compliance officer at Baylor Scott & White Health in Dallas, began his new role on April 5, 2021.
As an integral part of UF’s enterprise-wide compliance program, Bob’s responsibilities will include ensuring UF Health and its related entities comply with the full breadth of laws, regulations and policies impacting the health system and patient privacy. The post oversees compliance and privacy at all UF Health operations, including UF Health Shands in Gainesville, UF Health Jacksonville and UF Health Central Florida. Additionally, Bob will have primary oversight for compliance and privacy matters within the clinical operations of the UF Health Science Center, in close coordination with UF’s Chief Compliance, Ethics, and Privacy Officer.
A chief compliance and privacy officer is a critical leadership position in any health care organization, and Bob is poised to lead the UF Health efforts in that regard. Bob is an experienced and accomplished compliance and privacy professional with over twenty years of leadership positions in large integrated health systems. In addition to eleven years with Baylor Scott & White Health, which is the largest not-for-profit health care system in Texas, Bob served as vice president and chief compliance officer of the former West Penn Allegheny Health System in Pittsburgh for nine years and director of patient financial services for more than three years before that. Bob earned a master of health administration degree, graduating first in his class, and a bachelor of science degree in microbiology at The Ohio State University.
Please join us in welcoming Bob Michalski to the University of Florida and UF Health.
