The Detroit Medical Center has appointed Dr. Leonardo Lozada chief medical officer and Travis Maher chief nursing officer for Detroit Receiving, Harper University, and Hutzel Women’s hospitals.

Lozada most recently served as senior vice president and chief physician executive at Saint Luke’s Health System in Kansas City. He was responsible for integrating care across all service lines in the 11-hospital system and worked to change its focus from a hospital-centered model to a patient-centered one.

He also served as a chief adviser on all matters related to population health, health-care reform, care team model redesign, and clinical affiliation agreements with nonsystem health-care organizations.

Lozada is an anesthesiologist and completed his residency at the Cleveland Clinic, as well as a fellowship in neuro-anesthesiology at the Mayo Clinic. He also holds a Master of Business Administration from Duke University.

Maher was most recently chief nursing officer at Minneapolis’ Abbott Northwestern Hospital, a 631-bed teaching and Magnet-designated hospital. He led the more-than 2,300 employees in the nursing division, improved nursing communication, and improved hand hygiene scores from 64 percent to 90 percent overall.

After completing his bachelor’s degree in nursing at Dickinson State University, Maher earned a master’s degree in management from Cardinal Stritch University.

DMC operates eight hospitals and institutes.
