PITTSBURGH (AP) - One of the top executives at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center is leaving to become chief executive officer at the University of Colorado Health System.

Fifty-year-old Elizabeth Concordia was one of four executive vice presidents at UPMC, and was president of its hospital and community services division which operates UPMC’s 20 hospitals and includes 36,000 of the western Pennsylvania health giant’s 62,000 employees.

As CEO of the Colorado health network, she’ll oversee five hospitals with 14,500 employees and $2.4 billion in annual revenue.

Concordia says she didn’t leave her $2.5 million post with UPMC because she was unhappy, but rather because she was recruited for the Colorado job, saying, “These opportunities only come along every once in a while.”

Concordia begins her new job Sept. 2.
