Ascension Michigan Executive Leadership Team

Committed to the delivery of personalized care for all, with a focus on those most in need, and leading the transformation of healthcare.

Each member of the Ascension Michigan Executive Leadership team is committed to living and fulfilling our Mission of caring for all persons, with special attention to those most vulnerable, each and every day. Our first priority is the health and safety of our patients and associates. We take great pride in the exceptional care and experience our 22,000+ associates provide to those who have entrusted us with their care across our 16 hospitals and hundreds of healthcare facilities.

Please help our team continue to learn, grow and be the best leaders we can be by providing feedback, questions and suggestions to us directly. An Ascension Michigan executive leader will respond within three business days. We truly believe that listening to those we are privileged to serve is how we will continue to be the leading provider of Catholic healthcare in Michigan.
