Cedar Rapids Gazette: University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics Chief Executive Officer Suresh Gunasekaran — just three years after arriving to lead the state’s largest teaching hospital — is leaving to head the No. 9-ranked University of California San Francisco Academic Health System, the university announced Tuesday. Gunasekaran has been one of the area’s most publicly visible faces as the COVID-19 pandemic nears its second anniversary in Iowa, warning just last week that the UIHC was seeing the most dire situation it has been through with infected patient counts at an all-time high while more of its staff are out sick than before. Gunasekaran will be leaving at the end of February to start March 1 as CEO of the UCSF Academic Health System.
