MetroHealth appoints Chief Administrative Officer
(Cleveland, Ohio) – MetroHealth has promoted Daniel Lewis to Chief Administrative Officer of the health system.
In his new role, Lewis oversees human resources, information services, protective services and call center operations.
Since joining MetroHealth in 2007 as Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, Lewis is credited with transforming his staff into a highly functioning, efficient team. Mark Moran, MetroHealth’s Chief Executive Officer and President, says Lewis was appointed Chief Administrative Officer because he knows how to build a performance-driven culture.
“Just as we have focused on structuring medical operations to best serve patients by providing outstanding quality outcomes and efficiency in care, we must now apply those same principles to the administrative side of our business,” Moran said. “By consolidating these areas under Dan’s direction, I expect his forward-thinking guidance and strengths in strategic planning and organizational change management to make a very positive impact on the organization.”
Before coming to MetroHealth, Lewis served for 28 years in various roles at well-known Northeast Ohio companies such as OM Group Inc., Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co, Complient Corp. and International Management Group.
Lewis currently is President of the Northeast Ohio Health, Science and Innovation Council, which is a collaborative effort involving MetroHealth, the Cleveland Clinic, EMH Healthcare, Louis Stokes Cleveland Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Southwest General Health Center, Summa Health System and University Hospitals. The group works together to develop healthcare talent in Northeast Ohio.
In addition, Lewis is on the board of the AFSCME Health Care Plan and the Center for Health Affairs’ CHAMPS division, and is on the Task Force Advisory Board for the Medical Mart. He also is co-chair of the United Way Health Care Sector fundraising group.
