Bon Secours names Richmond market president
Mike Lutes to start Oct. 10
Bon Secours has named Mike Lutes as its new president for the health system’s Richmond market, effective Oct. 10.
He will oversee all Richmond market operations, according to a news release. Lutes replaces Faraaz Yousef, who left Bon Secours in April to become chief operating officer and executive vice president of Pennsylvania-based WellSpan Health.
Lutes joins Bon Secours from Atrium Health, a nonprofit health system in Charlotte, North Carolina, with more than 70,000 employees, 40 hospitals and 1,400 care locations. He spent 15 years there, holding multiple leadership roles and most recently serving as senior vice president and president for its southern market with oversight of five hospitals.
“Mike Lutes is exceptionally skilled with complex health care system operations in diverse markets and has demonstrated a real strength in establishing community partnerships,” Don Kline, Bon Secours Mercy Health chief operating officer, said in a statement. “He is a proven leader who has been successful throughout his career implementing a strategic vision and collaborating with physicians and associates, and we are excited to welcome him to our health care ministry.”
Lutes has a bachelor’s in business administration and health care management from Appalachian State University and a master’s of health administration from the Medical University of South Carolina.
