UP Health System – Marquette CEO Ed Banos is leaving after less than 18 months on the job. A release from the hospital says Banos will be heading to San Antonio, Texas, for a job at University Hospital. Banos arrived at what was then Marquette General Hospital two years ago, when he was named President and Chief Operating Officer. He was elevated to CEO after Gary Muller retired seven months later. UP Health System Market President Jim Bogan will take over during the search for Banos’ successor. Bogan was previously CEO of Portage Health in Hancock – now known as UP Health System – Portage.
Here is the full statement from UP Health System:
UP Health System – Marquette announced today that Jim Bogan is assuming the top leadership post at the hospital while a national search is launched for a new permanent chief executive officer (CEO). Bogan, who is Market President for UP Health System, will assume the position on an interim basis effective June 11, following Ed Banos’ departure. Banos, who has served as CEO of UP Health System – Marquette, since 2013, is pursuing an opportunity at University Hospital in San Antonio,
“I am pleased to step into the top leadership role at UP Health System – Marquette to help ensure a smooth transition and facilitate a successful national process to find the best candidate to lead the hospital into the future,” Bogan said. “Ed’s contributions to the hospital and UP Health System have been tremendous, and we wish him further success in this next chapter of his career.”
Bogan continued, “The leadership change will not impact progress with construction planning of our new hospital in Marquette or the expansion of several key medical services. I am confident that this change will be seamless for our employees, physicians and the community.”
Bogan was named Market President of UP Health System in April 2014. He previously served as CEO of Portage Health, now UP Health System – Portage in Hancock, a sister-facility to UP Health System – Marquette. Also included in UP Health System is UP Health System – Bell in Ishpeming.
Among Bogan’s accomplishments at UP Health System – Portage, he directed the construction and occupancy of a new $30 million healthcare facility, established an integrated medical group affiliated with the hospital, developed a thriving volunteer program, and successfully led hospital operations for 24 years. Prior to leading Portage, Bogan served in numerous leadership positions at Trinity Medical Center in Minot, North Dakota, from 1974-1989. He earned his MBA from the University of North Dakota and his bachelor’s degree from North Dakota State University. He also is a graduate of the Hospital Administration Program at Concordia College in Minnesota and is an American College of Healthcare Executives Fellow.
Bogan will maintain his duties as Market President while he is serving as interim CEO of the Marquette facility.
