Trinity Health announced Friday it has added three new members to its executive team, changes the health system said are designed to underscore its commitment to patient and employee experience and innovation.
Cassandra Willis-Abner is now the Livonia, Mich.-based health system's new senior vice president of diversity and inclusion and chief experience officer. Marcus Shipley is Trinity's new chief information officer and senior vice president of innovation. Trinity also named Dr. Mouhanad Hammami its senior vice president of safety net transformation, community benefit, and community health and well-being.
Trinity's CEO, Mike Slubowski, wrote in a statement that he is excited about what the three new executives can accomplish.
"They helped us lay the foundation for robust cultural and operational changes already and I look forward to seeing them help us continue to transform the holistic Trinity Health experience and create a trusting relationship with every person that connects with us for health," he said. "As a faith-based health system, we are committed to becoming a national leader in improving the health of our communities and each person we serve as the most trusted health partner for life."
Willis-Abner joined Trinity in 2017 as vice president of diversity and inclusion, in which she led the design and implementation of the system's diversity and inclusion strategic model. In her new role, she'll continue to oversee those initiatives, especially in clinical and operational areas.
Shipley joined Trinity in 2012 to provide oversight for information technology and other areas. His new role broadens that focus.
