Leadership Lunch with Tina Freese Decker

When Beaumont Health and Spectrum Health merged earlier this year, the combined BHSH emerged as the largest healthcare system in Michigan with a team of 64,000+ – including more than 11,500 physicians and advanced practice providers and more than 15,000 nurses offering services in 22 hospitals, 300+ outpatient locations and several post-acute facilities – and Priority Health, a provider-sponsored health plan serving over 1.2 million members across the state of Michigan.

Tina Freese Decker, who led Spectrum, now leads the combined system as president and CEO. Over her two decades in health care, Tina has developed a track record for cultivating culture and driving strategy. She is committed to building a health system that celebrates and reinforces diversity, equity and inclusion for team members, patients, families and members.

Join us for a special luncheon on Oct. 25 featuring a conversation with Tina about healthcare trends, leadership, and what the merger means for Michigan healthcare consumers.
