CEO Joe Mullany: Excited to be a Part of Detroit Medical Center

Joe Mullany serves as CEO of Detroit Medical Center. He joined DMC in April 2012 as president.

Prior to joining DMC, Mr. Mullany was the president of Nashville, Tenn.-based Vanguard Health Systems' New England region. While Mr. Mullany held that position, the hospitals in his region received several awards and honors and developed recognized service lines, including some with excellence designations for stroke care, hospice, home care and cancer care services.

Vanguard Health Systems owns Detroit Medical Center, and that connection was part of the reason Mr. Mullany was so taken with the chance to join DMC to begin with. "When DMC was named one of the country's 32 Pioneer ACOs, I began to realize how fast the Vanguard/DMC team is building one of the great academic medical centers in America. It's an exciting time to be at DMC," he said when he took the president position. "You just don't get many chances like this in a career."

Before moving to Michigan, Mr. Mullany was very involved in New England healthcare outside of his position with Vanguard. He served on the boards of the Massachusetts Hospital Association, the Kenneth Schwartz Center for Compassionate Care and the Federation of American Hospitals. He has also served as a board member of the Massachusetts Biomedical Initiatives.

Mr. Mullany has a MBA and master of health science degree from the University of Florida in Gainesville.
