Tricia Haener, MBA-HA, BSN, named chief nursing officer at McLaren Macomb

McLaren Macomb, the Mount Clemens-based hospital with several locations throughout Macomb County, has named Tricia Haener, MBA-HA, BSN, as its vice president of patient care services and chief nursing officer. Haener assumes the role vacated by Julia Libcke, who decided to pursue opportunities outside of McLaren Health Care.

Haener brings more than 15 years of experience to her new role, beginning first as a clinical nurse before earning leadership positions with increasing responsibility.

“I’m excited to join this hospital and have the opportunity to lead such a stellar nursing staff,” Haener said. “The organization has such an extensive history in this community, earning its trust thanks in large part to the compassion and dedication of our bedside caregivers. I’m looking forward to working with our nursing leaders to build on this reputation and solidify that trust.”

Haener will provide administrative leadership and support to McLaren Macomb nursing staff, which numbers more than 400, to create an overall positive and collaborative patient-focused environment.

“We are collectively excited to add a person and healthcare professional of Tricia’s caliber to our system and to the leadership team at McLaren Macomb,” said Tom Brisse, McLaren Macomb president and CEO. “Her energetic personality and experience across all levels of nursing care will make an immediate and positive impact on our staff at a time when nursing is more critical than ever.”

Haener joining McLaren Macomb will be a homecoming of sorts for her. After earning her nursing degree from St. Clair County Community College, her first job was with Port Huron Hospital, which would become McLaren Port Huron, a McLaren Macomb sister hospital. She would continue her education at Ohio University in Athens.

Furthering her career and education, she would go on to earn a Master’s in Business Administration with a focus on health care administration from Spring Arbor University in Spring Arbor, Mich.

Haener is a native of metro Detroit and continues to call the area home, where, as a proud mother, she raised her two children.
