President of Beaumont Health Dr. Benjamin Schwartz has named Nancy Susick chief operating officer for acute and post-acute services at the health system that is now part of BHSH System after combining with Grand Rapids’ Spectrum Health last year.
In this role she will oversee Beaumont’s hospital presidents. As she takes on this position, Susick will leave her previous role of president of Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak. Over the past year, Susick served as co-chief operating officer in an interim capacity.
Beginning in February, she also served as interim president of Beaumont Health for five months when Beaumont Health joined with Spectrum Health.
“Nancy is a well-respected leader at Beaumont and in our community. I am thrilled she will serve in this new role and I’m confident she will do a wonderful job leading our teams,” says Schwartz.
Debbie Guido-Allen will serve as interim president of Beaumont, Royal Oak during the internal and external search for a new president of the hospital campus.
Susick joined Beaumont as a registered nurse in 1986. Since then, she has held various leadership, staff, and administrative positions at Beaumont, Royal Oak and Beaumont, Troy.
“I am honored to help lead our teams during this time of tremendous change in health care,” says Susick. “We have such a phenomenal group of people working every day to serve our patients and our communities.”
She retired with the rank of Captain from the United States Navy Reserve in 2012 after 24 years of service, having held multiple leadership positions including commanding officer and executive training officer. She received numerous military awards.
Susick earned her master’s degree in nursing from Oakland University and a bachelor’s degree in nursing from University of Detroit Mercy.
