LANSING, Mich. — Thomas Mee, RN, BSN, MBA was named President and Chief Executive Officer of McLaren Greater Lansing today by the hospital’s Board of Trustees. Mee succeeds Rick Wright who resigned to pursue other opportunities.


“Tom’s background includes a valuable blend of front-line clinical and management experience as a nurse along with a proven track record of success in hospital administration,” said E. James Barrett, Chairman, McLaren Greater Lansing Board of Trustees. “The hospital’s strong leadership team combined with Tom’s passion for quality, physician engagement and his strong sense of community will help us develop innovative ways to meet the growing health care needs of the Greater Lansing community.”
