Beaumont Health CEO names executive team

 Beaumont Health President and CEO Gene Michalski has named the top executive team for the new $3.8 billion health care organization that combined Beaumont Health System, Botsford Health Care and Oakwood Healthcare.

“We had a deep pool of qualified internal candidates from throughout our new organization to draw from in selecting the team to lead Beaumont Health,” says Michalski. “What makes our new organization so special is that there are talented and dedicated people at all levels who are committed to our vision of providing the highest quality, highest value medical care with a seamless patient experience.”

 The Beaumont Health executive team members are:

 • Brian Connolly, president of Network Development and Future Initiatives (president and CEO, Oakwood Healthcare)

• Paul LaCasse, D.O., chair, Clinical Leadership Council (president and CEO, Botsford Health Care)

• Margaret Casey, chief development officer (president, Beaumont Foundation, Beaumont Health System)

• J. Paul Conway, chief human resources officer (senior vice president, Human Resources, Oakwood Healthcare)

• John Keuten, chief financial officer (executive vice president and chief financial officer, Oakwood Healthcare)

• Subra Sripada, chief transformation officer (chief administrative and information officer, Beaumont Health System)

• Lisa DiehlVandecaveye, chief corporate responsibility officer (chief legal officer, Botsford Health Care)

• Gordon Walker, chief legal officer (chief legal officer of Beaumont Health System)

• David Wood, M.D., chief medical officer (chief medical officer of Beaumont Health System).

Beaumont, Botsford and Oakwood announced their intention to come together to form a new health care organization on March 26. They reached a definitive agreement on June 23. The new organization was launched on Sept. 2 after federal and state regulatory officials reviewed and approved the affiliation and granted tax-exempt, not-for-profit status.

Beaumont’s Health’s 14-member board of directors is a blend of former board members of all three organizations and is chaired by John Lewis, former chairman of the Oakwood Healthcare Board.

Now that the new organization is launched, teams of leaders are working with their counterparts at the other organizations to develop plans for integrating functional activities that build on the individual strengths of the three legacy organizations.
Between now and year end, Michalski and the executive team will work to consolidate and align all the individual entities that make up Beaumont Health. A new organizational structure will be developed.
