“Mike has already proven to be dedicated to our healing mission and a strong leader,” Bonnie Phipps, ministry market leader for Carondelet Health's parent Ascension Health
, said in a release. “Mike has experience as chief executive officer of two hospitals within one system prior to coming to Carondelet Health that shows his ability to build a strong cooperative team.”Follow Rachel Landen on Twitter: @MHrlanden
