Sidra Medical and Research Center (Sidra) has appointed Peter Morris as its new chief executive officer with effect from January 8. Morris is the former CEO of Barts Health NHS Trust, one of London’s leading hospital groups.
To date, Morris has pursued an impressive leadership career spanning several of the UK’s foremost academic medical centres and healthcare providers.
During his tenure at Barts Health NHS Trust, Morris led the organisation through an unprecedented period of growth and redevelopment by opening three new hospitals and centres of excellence in the capital, including The Royal London Hospital and the Barts Heart Centre, which is now one of the world’s leading specialist centres for adult cardiac services.
“Sidra’s leadership are delighted to welcome Peter Morris on board at this important juncture in the history of the project and as the organisation looks forward to opening outpatient maternity and paediatric services in 2016,” it was mentioned in a statement yesterday.
Prof the Lord Darzi of Denham, vice-chairperson of Sidra said, “Peter Morris will bring a wealth of senior experience in leading large projects and the commissioning of brand new hospitals in the UK, to help lead Sidra to its next exciting chapter and the provision of patient services in 2016.”
Morris said Sidra shares his “deep commitment for achieving the very best standards of healthcare provision and research output for the people of Qatar.”
Sidra’s acting chief executive officer, Timothy Carmack, will resume his senior leadership role as chief financial officer.
