HCA’s Tim McManus promoted to national role
Lunn to lead health system's Richmond-based Capital Division
HCA Healthcare Inc. is promoting the president of its Richmond-based Capital Division, Tim McManus, to lead its national operating group, effective Jan. 1, HCA announced Tuesday.
Dr. William Lunn, who currently serves as CEO of HCA’s Chippenham and Johnston-Willis hospitals, will follow McManus as HCA’s new Capital Division president. The division includes 19 hospitals in Virginia, New Hampshire, Indiana and Kentucky. Lunn will be based in Richmond.
In his new role, McManus will oversee HCA’s National Group, which includes HCA’s Capital, North Carolina, TriStar, Mountain and Far West divisions. It includes 60 hospitals in 11 states. He succeeds HCA executive Chuck Hall, who is retiring as HCA’s National Group president at the end of the year, following a 36-year career with HCA.
The National Group is one of three HCA operating groups, each of which contains five domestic divisions. Based in Nashville, Tennessee, HCA previously had two operating groups but a third was created as part of a recent organizational restructuring. These changes, along with several other executive moves across the organization, also will become effective Jan. 1. McManus will be based out of Nashville.
“While I have been with HCA Healthcare for over 15 years, I have been privileged to spend the majority of that time as a part of the Capital Division, serving first as CEO for Reston Hospital Center and later as CEO of Chippenham and Johnston-Willis hospitals, before becoming division president six years ago,” McManus said. “Throughout all of these roles, I have immensely enjoyed working with the teams. Their commitment to our patients and colleagues is the greatest strength of this division and I couldn’t be prouder of everything we’ve accomplished.”
McManus has been in his current role, overseeing HCA’s Capital Division, since 2016. Before that, he served as CEO of HCA’s Chippenham and Johnston-Willis hospitals in Chesterfield County. McManus graduated from Tulane and Johns Hopkins universities with degrees in psychology and health care administration. He is also vice chairman of the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association’s board.
Lunn is a Harvard fellowship-trained executive and served as president and CEO of Tulane Health System before leading hospitals in Virginia. He earned his undergraduate degree from Tulane University and attended the University of Texas Southwestern for medical school. Lunn has had a private practice in pulmonary and critical care medicine. He was a founding member of Baylor College of Medicine’s Airway and Pleural Disease Center and served as its first director, along with other roles there. He has also been chief operating officer at Christus Health, in Northern Louisiana.
“I am excited to assume my new role as Capital Division president,” Lunn said in a statement. “It will be a great opportunity to draw upon lessons learned throughout my career, from the bedside as a pulmonologist, to a hospital administrator, to a healthcare executive. The key to success will always be to empower our colleagues and give them all of the tools they need to continue to care like family for every patient who chooses our hospitals for their healthcare needs.”
HCA has more than 283,000 employees, about 17,000 of whom work within the Richmond-headquartered Capital Division. The company reported $14.971 billion in revenues for the third quarter, slightly down from 2021’s third-quarter earnings. However, revenues are up for the nine months ending Sept. 30, totaling $44.736 billion, up, compared to $43.688 billion in the same period of 2021.
