He will replace Dr. Robert Lynch, who has retired.

“It is both an honor and privilege to work with the outstanding medical staff and dedicated leaders who make Tulane Medical Center an extraordinary healthcare and teaching facility, and an undisputed community asset committed to providing every patient with the highest level of care in an environment where people, compassion and integrity are valued,” Lunn said in a statement.

Tulane University and Nashville-based HCA—the largest health system in the country—jointly own the two-campus, 327-bed Tulane Medical Center.
