An executive realignment at Trinity Health, Novi, Mich., is creating several new positions and adding a manager to the corporate executive team with the overarching goal of building the systems ambulatory and physician services, which already generate about half of Trinitys revenue.
The changes, which do not involve any separations, are effective July 1. Trinity Health, which owns 33 hospitals and manages 12 others under contract, is promoting Michael Slubowski, 54, to the newly created position of president of health networks, following 12 years with the system. Slubowski will be leading the development of health networks, including ambulatory services, physician alignment and practice-management initiatives.
Slubowskis former role as president of hospital and health networks is being phased out, but a new position that includes many of his former job duties overseeing operations at Trinitys facilities is being created. That job, president of hospital operations, is being filled on an interim basis by Rick OConnell, who is joining Trinitys corporate offices following seven months as interim chief operating officer at 351-bed St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center, Boise, Idaho.
