As the Chief Medical Officer overseeing all medical practices, Dr. Weinstein will be focused on ensuring best-in-class outcomes and experiences for patients, improving behavioral health access and quality, and leveraging technology to better serve patients and the community.
Previously, Dr. Weinstein has served as the Chairman of Internal Medicine and as Vice President of Medical Affairs at Good Samaritan Medical Center. 
“My vision for the future of high-quality healthcare at Good Samaritan Medical Center is informed by the perspective I have developed over my thirty years of experience with patients,” said Dr. Weinstein. “I am excited to bring help ensure a bright future and quality care for patients across the Steward Health Care System, including at Good Samaritan.”
“We are thrilled by the appointment of Dr. Weinstein as system-wide Chief Medical Officer,” said John A. Jurczyk, FACHE, President of Good Samaritan Medical Center. “Dr. Weinstein is an exceptional choice and patients will benefit greatly from his contributions both locally and across the entire Steward system.”
