Tina Freese-Decker became interim president at Spectrum Health United Memorial July 1. Tina’s interim placement comes as result of Paul Bonis’ transition to the role of president at Blodgett Hospital in East Grand Rapids.
Tina will be responsible for both the operations and strategic planning at United and Kelsey hospitals.
She joined Spectrum Health in 2002 as a postgraduate fellow in health care administration. In 2003, she became director of system strategic planning and development. Three years later she was named vice president of the department and executive director of the Spectrum Health Regional Hospital Network. Her experience in strategic planning and developing system wide growth and business plans will be an asset to Spectrum Health United Memorial as she continues implementation of the many strategic initiatives started under Paul Bonis’ leadership.
