Royal Philips Electronics (NYSE: PHG) has appointed Deborah DiSanzo as CEO of the Andover, Mass.-based Philips Healthcare and member of its Executive Committee. DiSanzo succeeds current CEO Steve Rusckowski, who will leave the company per April 30, 2012.

”I look very much forward to become a member of the Philips Executive Committee and CEO of Philips Healthcare,” DiSanzo said in a statement. “We have a strong foundation and are well positioned to grasp growth opportunities for Philips Healthcare in all phases of the care cycle, driven by our strong and meaningful innovation.”

DiSanzo joined Philips in 2001 when Philips acquired Agilent’s Healthcare Solutions Group. She became general manager of patient healthcare informatics and patient monitoring in June 2006 and CEO of that division two years later. In April 2010, DiSanzo became CEO of Patient Care and Clinical Informatics (PCCI).
