      LifePoint Hospitals names person to oversee Upper Michigan operations

      LifePoint Hospitals and Duke LifePoint Healthcare have announced the promotion of Jim Bogan to Market President, overseeing Upper Michigan's healthcare group.

      Bogan was previously the CEO of Portage Health, but will now oversee operations at Portage Health, Bell Hospital and Marquette General Hospital.

      "Jim's expertise in hospital operations and administration has been an asset to positioning Portage Health for the future, and we are excited to broaden his responsibilities and leadership," said Jeff Seraphine, Eastern Group President for LifePoint Hospitals. "His nearly 40 years of experience and deep involvement in the region's healthcare industry will not only benefit LifePoint's and Duke LifePoint's hospitals, but any healthcare provider throughout the region who is interested in building and advancing an integrated healthcare delivery system in the Upper Peninsula."

      A search is planned nationwide to find Bogan's replacement as CEO at Portage Health, according to LifePoint.
