OSU introduces new medical center official
Listen to the Story
Dr. Steven Gabbe previously chaired the OSU department of obstetrics and gynecology during Gordon Gee’s first tenure as Ohio State president. Gabbe left the university about a decade ago. Now he is leaving his position at Vanderbilt University as dean of the school of medicine. He says he is excited to return to Ohio State and assume leadership of the Medical Center.
“Ohio State is on the map and people know it,” Gabbe said.
Dr. Wiley Souba took over the medical center leadership after Dr. Fred Sanfilippo left the university last summer. Both Gabbe and Souba will take over the responsibilities of the former senior vice president. Gee says he hopes the new leadership model will help move the medical center forward.
“We don’t need to worry about internal politics. We don’t need to worry about sharp elbows,” Gee said. “We only need to worry about the opportunities that exist.”
The Medical Center is currently undergoing a billion dollar expansion project expected to be completed by 2016.
