University of Michigan Health has partnered with AMN Leadership Solutions to recruit a newly established Chief Operations Integration Officer who possesses system-wide thinking, a clear history of achieving results, a collaborative nature, and a commitment to professional development. This represents an incredible opportunity to join one of the world’s premiere universities. Michigan is recognized as a leader in higher education as evidenced through the outstanding quality of the 19 schools and colleges, internationally recognized faculty, and departments with 275+ degree programs.
The University is also home to Michigan Medicine, comprised of the Medical School, its clinical enterprise, the University of Michigan Health (UM-H) and Michigan Health Corp., the legal entity that allows the Academic Medical Center to enter into partnerships, affiliations, joint ventures, and other business activities. Michigan Medicine is an integral component of the University, fully sharing its mission, goals, and responsibilities. Its faculty and staff routinely collaborate with and meaningfully contribute across U-M’s schools and centers, and its culture embraces the University’s values of caring, innovation, inclusion, integrity, and teamwork. The entire U-M community takes immense pride in having a health system routinely ranked among the nation’s very best hospitals, and one that has been recognized as one of the best employers in the nation. While the University’s Board of Regents has delegated to the University of Michigan Health System Board certain responsibilities for the governance of the health system, formal institutional governance, and fiduciary responsibility for all of Michigan Medicine, including UM-H, rests with the University’s Board of Regents.
UM-H is composed of C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, the Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital, University Hospital, University of Michigan Health-West (formerly Metro Health), Frankel Cardiovascular Center, and the University of Michigan Medical Group (UMMG) which currently houses and supports more than 3,000 physicians and 140 clinics at 40 sites throughout Southeastern Michigan. There is also a new 264-bed hospital that is currently being built and scheduled to open in 2025 that will be called the Pavilion at UM-H. There are also multiple and important affiliations with MyMichigan Health, Trinity Health - Michigan, and Sparrow Health System to name several. UM-H currently consists of 1,315 licensed beds, 56,000+ discharges, and 3.0 million outpatient ambulatory visits, total net operating revenues of $5.2 billion and 19,906 FTEs (not including the medical school). Awards include U.S. News and World Report #11 ranking nationally and #1 in Michigan; Leap Frog “A” patient safety ranking; Becker’s Healthcare 150 Great Places to Work; and Nurse Magnet certification.
The University of Michigan Health (UM-H) Chief Operations Integration Officer (COIO) is responsible and accountable for all aspects of operations and integration across all entities of University of Michigan Health. The COIO ensures operational alignment and integration is seamless across all areas including Children & Women’s Hospital, University Hospital, Frankel Cardiovascular Center, Ambulatory Care, Ancillary Services, Pharmacy Operations, and operational oversight for external affiliations, including University of Michigan Health West, which is wholly owned by UM-H, but is not under the responsibility of the COIO.
As an active member of the UM-H Enterprise Triad, the COIO supports and facilitates an interdisciplinary team approach and partners with the Chief Nursing Executive (CNE) and the Executive Director of the University of Michigan Medical Group (ED - UMMG) to drive synergies across the clinical operating segments and use an enterprise approach to address shared issues. The COIO provides direct leadership and management for all segments (Ambulatory Care, University Hospital & Frankel Cardiovascular Center, Children & Women’s Hospital), Ancillary Services, and Pharmacy Operations. All segment Chief Operating Officers (COOs) across UM-H report to the COIO except for University of Michigan Health West.
