CEO Gene Michalski: Combating the Physician Shortage at Beaumont Health System
Gene Michalski, MBA, FACHE, has served as president and CEO of Beaumont Health System in Royal Oak, Mich., since June 2010. He is the fifth person to hold this role in the system's 55-year history.
Mr. Michalski has been in healthcare since 1978 when he joined Beaumont Hospital, Troy (Mich.), as an administrative assistant. Prior to becoming president and CEO, Mr. Michalski was the executive vice president and COO of the health system, a position he had held since 2006.
Mr. Michalski anticipated the impending physician shortage during his time at Beaumont and helped do something about it. He helped guide the opening of Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine in Rochester, Mich. The new medical school began as a partnership between Beaumont Health System and Oakland University that aims to combat the physician shortage. The first class had 50 students. "Over the next several years, we're going to increase the number of undergraduate medical education students by 150," Mr. Michalski said in a previous interview with Becker's Hospital Review.
Mr. Michalski has been recognized for his leadership efforts. In 2012, he was named to Becker's Hospital Review's list of 100 Non-Profit Hospital and Health System CEOs to Know.
