His passion is providing patient-focused health care and improving overall quality and value of care.

“As anyone in health care knows, it’s an exciting and challenging time to be in this industry. I believe ADC is poised to achieve continued success for the patients we serve and our physicians who are committed to providing the highest quality care,” said Dr. Salman. “It’s an honor to be named Chief Executive Officer, and I look forward to my new responsibilities at ADC.”
