He also has held CEO positions at Michigan CardioVascular Institute in Saginaw and the Cardiology Institute of Michigan in Flint, as well as administrative roles at Detroit Medical Center, Detroit Community Health Connection, Greater Detroit Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, and Great Lakes Rehabilitation Hospital.
“McLaren Health Care has a proven track record of success, growth and leadership that is unparalleled in the state,” said Hardimon. “I’m excited to be part of such an accomplished organization at a time when health care is changing so dramatically. The role of our physicians is greater than ever, and I look forward to working with them and the entire team at McLaren to continue providing high-quality care for patients in our communities.”
