McLaren Macomb, a 288-bed hospital serving all of Macomb County in Mount Clemens, has named Jim Williams to its executive leadership team as the hospital’s vice president and COO.
Williams comes to McLaren Macomb with more than 20 years of progressive hospital executive experience, having most recently served as chief nursing officer at McLaren Flint. Throughout his career, his increasing experience in both nursing and operations has resulted in achieving operational enhancements, work force development and facility expansion.
“Nursing is vital to any hospital’s overall operation, and it’s unique in how it interacts with so many different departments,” says Williams. “This has provided an invaluable perspective and a wealth of experience for me. I’m excited to join this organization and grow in my career, and to bring this perspective to the hospital, my new role, and our overall operations.”
In this role, Williams will provide administrative oversight and leadership to several hospital service lines and future expansion projects while also supporting hospital leadership’s identification and development of long-range planning.
McLaren Macomb is in the midst of its latest expansion with the opening of the Harrington Medical Center and Ambulatory Surgery Center, across from the hospital’s main campus, scheduled to open in the summer. This comes on the heels of several recent expansion projects.
“Within our own health care system, Jim has already demonstrated his ability to be a capable leader and dedicated health care professional,” says Tom Brisse, McLaren Macomb president and CEO. “His skill set will fit in well at McLaren Macomb, especially considering our recent expansions and plans for continued growth. We are excited to welcome Jim and his wealth of experience as a respected hospital leader to our team.”
