Chad Grant Named New President and CEO of McLaren Flint

I am pleased to announce that Chad M. Grant, FACHE, has accepted the position of President and CEO of McLaren Flint effective January 30, 2017. Chad was selected by an executive search committee comprised of governance, executive and physician leadership from McLaren Flint as well as representatives from the corporate office.

He brings an extensive background of health care leadership experience, including successful management of acute care hospital operations, strategic planning, new business development and change management.

Chad joined McLaren Health Care in December 2014 as the President and CEO of McLaren Oakland. In this position, he also had management responsibilities for the McLaren Clarkston campus located in Independence Township in northern Oakland County. During his tenure at McLaren Oakland, he achieved success in growing volumes and market share and improving the clinical and financial operation of that acute care facility. He oversaw the acquisition of a physician-owned urgent care clinic in Clarkston and transformed it into a freestanding, fullservice emergency center that serves in excess of 24,000 visits a year.

Prior to his role at McLaren Oakland, Chad enjoyed a successful, 20-year career in health care management at the Detroit Medical Center (DMC) where he held a number of positions of increasing responsibility. He served as chief operating officer at Children’s Hospital of Michigan, a DMC subsidiary. Prior to that, he was the vice president for several service areas at the DMC, including their cardiovascular institute. He was also an administrative director of ancillary services, including radiology, respiratory therapy, neurology, electroneurodiagnostics and a pediatric sleep disorders laboratory. His early background includes experience as a technologist in PET, MRI and nuclear medicine imaging.

“McLaren Flint has a longstanding reputation as a leader in providing high quality clinical care and innovation to the communities it serves. I believe that there are many substantial opportunities to grow and expand our services. I look forward to working closely with the medical staff, management team and employees to develop and implement clinical and operational strategies that will ensure our success moving forward”, Grant said.

Chad holds a bachelor’s degree in nuclear medicine from Siena Heights University and a master’s degree in health services administration from Central Michigan University. He serves on the board of directors for Junior Achievement of Southeast Michigan and Baker College- Auburn Hills and he has multiple professional affiliations, including the American College of Healthcare Executives and the Michigan Healthcare Executive Group and Associates.

Moving forward, I will work with the McLaren Oakland Board of Directors and medical executive leadership to facilitate an orderly transition and begin the process of identifying the next leader for that organization. Please join me in congratulating Chad in this new role.
