United Memorial Medical Center announces that the Board of Directors approved a leadership restructuring plan at their recent meeting.
The leadership restructuring plan includes separating the administrative oversight of the day-to-day operations of the organization from the role of the CEO, creating a separate position of President and effective succession development.
Mark C. Schoell will continue to lead United Memorial as CEO and report to the Board of Directors as the organization’s most senior executive. As the organization has become more diverse in services to meet the healthcare needs of our community, administration and management of daily operations has become equally complex. This tremendous responsibility will be delegated to the President, as the 2nd ranking senior executive at United Memorial, allowing the CEO to spend an increasing amount of time and energy on externally focused activities.
Daniel P. Ireland will be promoted to the new role of President, effective November 24, 2013. He currently serves as the Chief Operating Officer and Vice President of Operations. As the President of United Memorial Medical Center, Dan will lead a team of six senior leaders and their direct reports in maintaining and carrying out the daily operations of the organization.
“Dan has an exceptional depth of knowledge of the organization, understands the community we serve and the role of locally delivered healthcare. I am confident that he will continue to demonstrate the exceptional leadership skills and devotion he is known for and I am delighted to work with him in this new capacity,” stated Mark Schoell.
Mark Schoell has served as the President and CEO of United Memorial since September 2004. Since that time, United Memorial has grown significantly with the addition of several new service lines, physician specialties and over $60 million in capital improvements. Many residents in the surrounding counties and region have also come to rely on United Memorial for maternity care, women’s services, wound care, and pain management. While this has improved the financial status of the organization, more importantly, it has secured the position of locally delivered care to the residents of Genesee County.
Dan Ireland has been with United Memorial for over 20 years, holding progressively responsible positions beginning with Emergency Department Nurse Manager and Director of Quality Management. In 2005 he was promoted to Vice President of Clinical Support Services and in 2010, was named COO/Vice President of Operations. In addition to his leadership responsibilities for several hospital departments, Dan has provided project oversight for many of the recent building and capital improvement projects.
