In his new role, O'Halla will oversee all hospital and related
subsidiary operations across the organization, including McLaren Medical
Group, the employed physician network. He will work to establish
systemwide goals with regard to quality outcomes, patient experience
initiatives and financial performance. Additionally, he will develop and
implement plans and policies in collaboration with McLaren leadership
and serve as a liaison between McLaren Health Care and various
community, public and governmental organizations.
O'Halla brings nearly 30 years of health care experience to his new
role. He joined McLaren in 2006 as president and CEO of McLaren Macomb,
a 288-bed acute care hospital in Mount Clemens, Mich. Here, O'Halla was
responsible for overall hospital strategy and operations.
"Under Mark's leadership, McLaren Macomb returned to profitability after
losing more than $70 million in the four years prior to his arrival,"
said Phil Incarnati, president and CEO of McLaren Health Care. "During
the past several years, McLaren Macomb has consistently been among
McLaren's top-performing entities. Equally important is the respect Mark
has earned from the other members of the McLaren management team. He
understands our company's culture, and his dedication and work ethic
exemplify our mission of delivering the best value in health care as
defined by quality outcomes and cost."
As president and CEO of McLaren
Macomb, O'Halla had an integral role in making many leading-edge
health care treatments and technologies available to Macomb County
residents. A search is in progress for his successor.
"Mark has done an exceptional job leading McLaren Macomb," said Ted B.
Wahby, chairman of the McLaren Macomb board of trustees. "He helped
secure many health care advances for our community and has made
significant contributions to the growth and success of our hospital and
physician network in Macomb County. He will be missed, but we are happy
he is staying within the McLaren family."
Before working at McLaren Macomb, O'Halla served as CEO at St. Mary's
Hospital, a 251-bed facility located in Streator, Ill. Prior to this, he
spent seven years as chief operating officer at Clifton Springs Hospital
& Clinic in Clifton Springs, N.Y., as well as four years as chief
financial officer at Myers Community Hospital in Sodus, N.Y.
"I'm extremely pleased about this new opportunity," said O'Halla.
"McLaren Health Care has a focus on innovation and clinical quality
that will continue to impact patients throughout the state of
Michigan. The implementation of initiatives like proton
beam therapy, the TAVR
cardiac procedure and MAKOplasty
robotic orthopedic procedures are indicative of the forward-thinking
strategy that leads our organization. I'm excited to play a part in
McLaren's continued growth."
O'Halla earned a master's degree in business administration from the
University of Rochester and a bachelor's degree in accounting from the
University of Toledo. He serves as chair to the Southeast Michigan
American Heart Association board of directors and is involved in many
community and philanthropic initiatives.
O'Halla and his family reside in Troy, Mich.
