West Health gets a new CEO

The West Wireless Health Institute got a new face and a new name. The organization announced last week that former Johnson & Johnson executive Nicholas Valeriani will take over as CEO of what now will be called the West Health Institute. The name change--in which the word "wireless" is removed--was made to reflect the broad scope of healthcare; wireless, according to the organization, can't solve the healthcare cost conundrum by itself.

Simultaneously, the organization touted the launch of the new La Jolla, Calif.-based West Health Incubator, which will be open to startup companies that have received investment commitments from the West Health Investment Fund. Announcement
