Corewell Health on Tuesday named longtime healthcare leader Timothy Lyons as president of its Beaumont Grosse Pointe Hospital.
Lyons, 57, will replace Thomas Lanni Jr., 44, in the role effective in January. Lanni had served as the president of the Grosse Pointe and Troy hospitals since February and will retain the role at the Troy hospital after Lyons joins Corewell.
Lyons joins Corewell from the 151-bed Adventist Health St. Helena hospital in Northern California, where he served as chief medical officer. He previously served as the chief of staff and medical director of anesthesia at the hospital.
He's the president and founder of anesthesia practice Lyons Huber Anesthesia and medical group Lyons Huber Management as well as serving as an assistant professor of anesthesiology at Case Western University in Cleveland.

"I look forward to embracing the rich history and tradition of the Grosse Pointe hospital campus and the surrounding community," Lyons said in a press release. "It's also wonderful to be returning home to the Midwest. And, I am thrilled to lead and learn from the impressive team at Corewell Health Beaumont Hospital Grosse Pointe."
Lyons earned his bachelor's from Youngstown State University, medical degree from Northeast Ohio Medical University and a master's from Harvard University.
Beaumont acquired the 280-bed acute care hospital in Grosse Pointe in 2007 from Catholic system Bon Secours.
The hospital changed its name earlier this month after the merged Beaumont-Spectrum health system rebranded to Corewell Health. The merger occurred in February, roughly eight months after the pair announced they would merge.
Since the merger, the Beaumont side of the business has struggled financially. But earlier this week, Corewell CEO Tina Freese Decker told Crain's the group is accelerating its integration process in hopes of controlling costs.
