CEO David Lord: Sticking to his Roots at OSF St. Francis Hospital & Medical Group

David Lord has served as president and CEO of OSF St. Francis Hospital & Medical Group in Escanaba, Mich., since Feb. 4, 2013.

Mr. Lord has been with the hospital since 1996, when he joined as a manager of planning and decision support. He was then named vice president of operations in 2004, prior to taking over as president and CEO. Before joining OSF St. Francis, he served as IT administrator for Bell Memorial Hospital in Ishpeming, Mich.

Even though he joined OSF St. Francis Hospital in 1996, his history with the organization and the area dates back much further. "This community is near and dear to my heart. I was born in Escanaba and have been a lifelong resident of the Upper Peninsula," he said in a news release. "I am proud to be a part of their mission and this OSF Ministry."DavidLord

Outside of his duties as president and CEO, Mr. Lord serves on the boards of the Catholic Social Services of the Upper Peninsula, the Delta County Economic Development Alliance and the YMCA of Delta/Dickinson County Association. He also volunteers for different youth sports.

In recognition of his accomplishments in the healthcare field, Mr. Lord received the 2006 American College of Healthcare Executives Michigan Regent's Early-Careerist Award.
