Dr. Paul Entler, a strong advocate for patient safety and improved quality, has been named the senior vice president and chief clinical officer at Sparrow Health System based in Lansing.

Entler succeeds the retired Dr. Karen Kent VanGorder, who served as the health system’s senior vice president and chief medical and quality officer.

In his new role, Entler will lead the Sparrow Health System medical staff, patient experience, and continue his innovative work in improving patient safety and quality of care. He has served for the past four years as Sparrow’s vice president of quality and performance improvement.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has taken its toll on all of us in some way whether through loss of loved one, financial loss, and exposure of inequities in care delivery models. It is time to heal, unite, and recover as a community,” says Entler.

“As a leader at Sparrow and a community member for over 18 years, I am honored, energized, excited and passionate about driving change, building on our past successes, and transforming care delivery models through cutting edge analytics. In aligning with Sparrow’s values, my vision is to make Sparrow a destination center to work and receive medical care through reduction of friction and waste that is present in most healthcare systems.”

Entler is a board-certified general internist. He completed his residency and chief medical residency at The Western Pennsylvania Hospital in Pittsburgh, where he received numerous awards. He is a graduate of the Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine. He also recently completed his master’s degree in medical management from Carnegie Mellon University.
