University of Michigan Health System Announces Executive Changes

University of Michigan Health System approved the leadership changes recommended by Schlissel and Runge. All will take effect January 1, 2016. Runge, currently the university's executive vice president for medical affairs, will assume additional responsibility as dean of the Medical School. Bringing together the EVPMA and dean roles will naturally increase collaboration between faculty and staff in the Medical School and their colleagues in hospitals and health centers. Schlissel thanked Dr. James Woolliscroft, the current Medical School Dean, for his nearly 40 years of service to the university and pointed out his innovation in redesigning the Medical School curriculum and the school's consistently top ranking among U.S. medical schools. Regents also approved two new positions to the health system, as proposed by Runge. Dr. David Spahlinger will be promoted to executive vice dean for clinical affairs and president of the hospitals, health centers and the U-M Medical Group. Spahlinger currently is senior associate dean and head of the faculty group practice and oversees the ambulatory care centers. In his new role, he will report directly to Runge. T. Anthony Denton, currently acting CEO of the hospitals and health centers, will be promoted to senior vice president and chief operating officer for hospitals, health centers and the U-M Medical Group. He will report to Spahlinger. In recommending these changes, Runge said that strong leaders are essential for the future as the health system pursues strategic priorities designed to help the system operate seamlessly as a single enterprise.
