Timothy Goldfarb, the CEO of UF Health Shands, will be stepping down in July, reports the Gainesville Sun. Chief Operating Officer Edward Jimenez, who was brought in 3 ½ years ago to be groomed as an eventual replacement , will serve as Interim CEO.

Goldfarb , who has led the academic health system for 13 years, oversaw the opening of the Cancer Hospital in 2009 and the closing of Shands AGH in downtown Gainesville.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
