Reuters Health hired Ivan Oransky as executive editor, heading editorial operations for the company's global medical and healthcare news services.

The appointment became effective June 15.

“Joining Reuters Health is a great opportunity to lead a talented team that has built a highly authoritative, comprehensive and successful news service over the years,” Oransky told the Association of Health Care Journalists (AHCJ). Oransky was elected to the AHCJ's board in 2002.

Vincent Baby, VP of news services for Reuters News Agency, said in a statement that Oransky's academic and professional track record “make him the ideal person to develop Reuters Health and further leverage the unique assets of Thomson Reuters in the scientific and healthcare arena for the benefit of our professional and media customers.”

Oransky was previously an online managing editor at Scientific American, where he oversaw “significant content expansion and high traffic growth,” according to a statement.

In addition to AHCJ, Oransky is also a member of the National Association of Science Writers.

The move follows the planned retirement of Robert Saunders, who has been at the editorial helm of Reuters Health for over 10 years.

“Saunder's significant contributions and strategic leadership have helped build Reuters Health over the past decade,” said Baby.
