Minneapolis-based Fairview Health Services appointed three new senior executives.

Fairview named M. Osman Akhtar COO. Most recently, he was vice president of operational integration for Sacramento, Calif.-based Sutter Health.

Laura Reed, DNP, RN, is Fairview's new chief nursing executive. She previously served as chief nurse executive and COO at Appleton, Wis.-based ThedaCare.
