3 top execs to leave Detroit Medical Center: 4 things to know

Detroit Medical Center will say goodbye to three top executives, according to a Crain's Detroit Business report.

Here are four things to know about the departures.

1. The three executives are leaving to pursue other jobs and opportunities, Detroit Medical Center CEO Joe Mullany confirmed April 11 to Crain's Detroit Business.

2. Detroit Medical Center COO Andrei Soran is leaving to become CEO of an undisclosed health system in California; Larry Gold, CEO of DMC's Children's Hospital of Michigan, has left to pursue other opportunities; and Michael Lacusta, an executive vice president, is leaving DMC to become Ernst & Young's coordinating services director for the health advisory group, according to Mr. Mullany.

3. Of the departures, Mr. Mullany told Crain's Detroit Business, "As we continue on our 'Path to the Top,' one of the positives along with the negatives is that the great work being done at the DMC gets noticed nationally. And with that so do members of our team. When other organizations read about everything happening here at the DMC they want to incorporate those opportunities into their organization. The easiest way is to recruit DMC talent."

4. Mr. Gold will be replaced by Luanne Ewald, who was appointed interim CEO of Children's Hospital. Ms. Ewald most recently was corporate vice president for business development and marketing at DMC.
