McLaren Health Care Names New Chief Operating Officer

Chad Grant to oversee operations at 15 McLaren Hospitals

Philip Incarnati, President/CEO of McLaren Health Care (MHC), today announced the promotion of Chad Grant to the position of Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for MHC. Prior to this promotion, he was the President of McLaren’s Central Region directing the hospital operations of McLaren Flint, McLaren Greater Lansing and McLaren Lapeer Region. In this new role, Grant will oversee all hospital operations across the organization. The McLaren system comprises 15 hospitals, including 14 in Michigan and one in Maumee, Ohio.

Grant 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’s in-depth knowledge of the McLaren system, combined with his expertise and proven track record in hospital operations, physician alignment and strategic planning will serve our organization well in building on market growth, access, and quality initiatives,” Incarnati said in making the announcement. “Chad’s work ethic and collaborative focus have earned him respect from all members of the McLaren executive management team as well as our physician and board leadership.”

Grant joined MHC in December 2014 as the President and CEO of McLaren Oakland. In this role, he also had management responsibilities for the McLaren Clarkston campus located 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 was promoted in 2016 to President and CEO of McLaren Flint. In this position, he continued to elevate the performance of the Flint-based hospital, which is the birthplace of the McLaren system. In 2018, Grant was one of three executives promoted to the newly created position of Regional President, with responsibilities for McLaren’s Central Region, which includes McLaren Greater Lansing, McLaren Lapeer Region and McLaren Flint.

Prior to joining McLaren, Grant enjoyed a successful, 20-year career in health care management at the Detroit Medical Center. During his tenure there, he held positions of increasing responsibility, culminating in the role of Chief Operating Officer at Children’s Hospital of Michigan.

Grant 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 has multiple professional affiliations, including the American College of Healthcare Executives and the Michigan Healthcare Executive Group and Associates.
