Van­der­bilt Univer­sity Med­i­cal Cen­ter, Nashville, has made two ex­ec­u­tive pro­mo­tions as the aca­demic med­i­cal cen­ter re­or­ga­nizes the struc­ture of its adult-care di­vi­sions.

Mitchell Edgeworth, 41, has been named COO of Van­der­bilt Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal and Clin­ics. Pre­vi­ously, he was COO of Van­der­bilt’s main hos­pi­tal. Edgeworth joined the med­i­cal cen­ter in 2012 and also held lead­er­ship roles with Quo­rum Health Re­sources.

Robin Ste­a­ban, 59, has been named chief nurs­ing of­fi­cer for the Van­der­bilt sys­tem. She has been with the med­i­cal cen­ter since 1990 and most re­cently served as the sys­tem’s as­so­ciate chief nurs­ing of­fi­cer and chief ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fi­cer of Van­der­bilt Heart and Vas­cu­lar In­sti­tute.

The new po­si­tions come as Van­der­bilt con­sol­i­dates lead­er­ship teams from its hos­pi­tals and clin­ics into one en­tity.

Spec­trum Health, Grand Rapids, Mich., has named Tina Freese-Decker pres­i­dent of the health sys­tem’s hos­pi­tal group and Dr. Seth Wolk chief med­i­cal of­fi­cer.

Freese-Decker, 36, over­sees the op­er­a­tions and growth of Spec­trum’s 11 hos­pi­tals and other care sites. She pre­vi­ously was Spec­trum’s se­nior VP and chief strat­egy of­fi­cer, and also has served as pres­i­dent of two Spec­trum hos­pi­tals. She has been with Spec­trum since 2002.

Wolk, 57, a vas­cu­lar sur­geon, will as­sume the CMO po­si­tion Aug. 4. He will re­tain his cur­rent role as pres­i­dent of Spec­trum Health Med­i­cal Group, a po­si­tion he’s held since March.

Moun­tain States Health Al­liance, John­son City, Tenn., has named Marvin Ei­chorn ex­ec­u­tive VP and COO.

Lynn Kru­tak will be­come CFO, re­plac­ing Ei­chorn.

Ei­chorn, 58, has served as the health sys­tem’s CFO for 16 years. Be­fore join­ing Moun­tain States, he was ex­ec­u­tive VP at Covenant Health, Knoxville, Tenn., for 14 years.

Kru­tak, 45, has held var­i­ous fi­nance po­si­tions at the sys­tem for 19 years, most re­cently as CFO for Moun­tain States’ Blue Ridge Med­i­cal Man­age­ment Corp. for the past five years.

Also, the sys­tem has cre­ated a clin­i­cal ser­vices divi­sion to help en­gage physi­cians in qual­ity-im­prove­ment ef­forts. It will be led by Dr. Mor­ris Selig­man, 58, Moun­tain States’ ex­ec­u­tive VP and chief med­i­cal of­fi­cer. He has been CMO for more than four years.
