The Cleveland Plain Dealer: "In an effort to keep pace with a $1.2 billion expansion and growing number of patients, University Hospitals said Tuesday that it will add more than 550 jobs in the coming year and announced a new management structure. The region's second-largest system, which saw patient volumes increase even in a dismal economic year, is gaining market share and plans to use the staff to add more services for people downtown and in the suburbs. ... Since [UH Chief Executive Tom Zenty] began leading the system in 2003, UH has turned its finances around and is in the final stages of an aggressive growth plan called Vision 2010. The system reported $1.7 billion in total revenues last year and earned $103.7 million after expenses, according to its most recent federal tax filing. Fundraising increased from $50 million in 2007 to $69.7 million in 2008" (Tribble, 12/8).
