Mercy Health Muskegon names new president

MUSKEGON, Mich.—  Mercy Health Muskegon has a new president.

Greg Loomis will take on the role permanently, effective Jan. 1, 2014.  Loomis has served as Mercy Health Muskegon’s interim president since November 2012.

“I am delighted that Greg has accepted the position,” said Mike Gluhanich, Chair of Mercy Health Muskegon Board of Trustees. “Greg has shown he is an outstanding leader. He is a trusted and experienced health care executive who has the knowledge and skill to ensure Mercy Health Muskegon, which is nationally and regionally recognized for high quality care, will continue to be a first-class organization. His thoughtful and decisive leadership is what this position will demand and we are fortunate to have him.”

 “Greg is a natural choice for the position,” said Roger Spoelman, regional president and CEO of Mercy Health. “A smooth transition is important at this time as the next several years will be demanding. With the recent appointment of Bill Manns as president of Mercy Health Saint Mary’s in Grand Rapids, we knew we had the right person in place in Muskegon to complete an outstanding regional leadership team. Greg’s talents, health care expertise and knowledge of the lakeshore community are unmatched.”

 Loomis said of the appointment, "I am pleased with the board’s confidence in me and excited to have the opportunity to continue to lead Mercy Health Muskegon into the future as we work to improve our facilities and our patients’ experience. My mission is to continue to deliver excellent health care, provide a strong focus on primary and specialty care and ensure Mercy Health Muskegon remains an affordable, accessible and high quality health care system for years to come.”

 Loomis began his career at Hackley Hospital before moving to Muskegon General Hospital, where he served as vice president of professional services. . Loomis’ hospital leadership experience spans more than three decades.
