Following a national search, Henry Ford Health System in Detroit has named Dr. Michael Genord president and CEO of Health Alliance Plan and executive vice president of the health system, effective immediately. He had served as HAP’s interim president and CEO since July 2019.

“Mike Genord brings a coveted balance of executive leadership on both the payer and provider sides of the health care industry,” says Wright Lassiter III, president and CEO of Henry Ford Health System. “His experience as a physician has allowed him to build meaningful relationships with HAP’s provider partners, an essential element of providing the best care and coverage for HAP members. This integrated care and coverage model will be key as HAP continues to be poised for future growth and expansion.”

In addition, Genord will continue serving as president and CEO of HAP Empowered Health Plan, a licensed health maintenance organization and wholly owned subsidiary of HAP that serves Medicaid and dual eligible Medicare-Medicaid beneficiaries.

Previously, Genord was HAP’s senior vice president and chief medical officer. He led the development and implementation of HAP’s clinical and operational programs in partnership with health care providers throughout the region.

Before joining HAP, Genord was president and CEO of HealthPlus, also serving as the company’s chief medical officer. HealthPlus merged with HAP in 2016. Genord has held leadership roles at William Beaumont Hospital and United Physicians Group and managed a private practice for 17 years.

“Throughout every step in my journey, I have seen the fundamental value of trusted relationships between physicians and payers and a fierce dedication to community,” Genord says. “I am thrilled to continue in this role as HAP’s leader, working alongside our physician partners to disrupt the market, creating unprecedented quality and value for our members.”

Genord serves on the boards for Alliance of Community Health Plans, Health Plan Alliance, Greater Detroit Area Health Council, Greater Flint Health Coalition, and Notre Dame Preparatory.

He is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology and earned his medical degree from the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine. He has a master’s degree in business administration from MSU’s Eli Broad Graduate School of Management and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan.

HAP is a nonprofit health plan that provides health coverage to individuals and companies. It is an operating unit of Henry Ford Health System, which has six hospitals and more than 250 sites.
