Marc E. Milstein has joined UT Southwestern as Vice President of Information Resources and Chief Information Officer, effective Aug. 1.

Reporting directly to Arnim Dontes, Executive Vice President for Business Affairs, Mr. Milstein will work to create greater efficiencies and value by integrating Information Resources with Business Affairs. He will have accountability and oversight for UTSW’s academic, health system, and administrative information resources as well as all central infrastructure, systems, and client services operations. Additionally, he will work in close collaboration with clinical, academic, research, and administrative leadership teams to oversee the design, implementation, and support of the University’s information technology strategic planning initiatives and projects.

“With the continued significant growth across all of our mission areas, the importance of outstanding, transformative information technology is only increasing,” Mr. Dontes said. “Marc brings deep knowledge and experience to both our academic and health care enterprises that will allow us to build upon our already strong information resources foundation. I am very happy to welcome Marc to the team.”

Mr. Milstein’s 35-year career in technology and data science includes 27 years of executive-level experience. He most recently served as Associate Vice Chancellor and CIO for the UT System, with responsibilities that included planning and implementing UT systemwide IT systems and projects that support academic, research, and administrative operations. He also led teams that enabled UT to develop and build new technology and intellectual property initiatives.

Prior to joining the UT System in 2014, Mr. Milstein was the Vice President for Information Technology and CIO for Yeshiva University/Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City, where he was the senior executive responsible for information services across four campuses. In this role, he led the University’s first strategic planning process for technology, bringing information technology to a highly integrated and strategic role to support the core missions of the University. Previous experience includes CIO positions with Continuum Health Partners, University of Missouri Health Care, and the Cambridge Health Alliance.

For a decade, Mr. Milstein worked at Children’s Medical Center Dallas as Vice President of Information Services. He was first exposed to UTSW’s reputation for groundbreaking research and exceptional clinical care during that time.

“I’m excited to return to the health care industry,” Mr. Milstein said. “First of all, at UT Southwestern, we’re improving the health of people throughout the Metroplex, Texas, and beyond. Second, this is an exciting time for advancements in health care information technology. I’m looking forward to continuing the great progress that UT Southwestern has achieved while exploring new directions that will support the Institution’s strategic plan and mission, by expanding technology on campus, within the research labs, and to the care of patients in the hospitals and clinics.”

Mr. Milstein earned an M.B.A. in systems management from Baldwin-Wallace College in Cleveland, Ohio, and a Bachelor of Science from Case Western Reserve University.

He said he and his wife, Janie, a mixed-media artist and Dallas native, are excited for the opportunity to return to Dallas.
