Premier Health Leadership Changes: August 2019

Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Mike Maiberger retired on Aug 16. Barbara A. Johnson, a system vice president and Premier Health’s chief human resource officer, has been promoted to that role.

Maiberger is retiring after 27 years with Premier Health, making a significant and positive impact on behalf of patients, physicians, employees, volunteers, and the entire community. He served in various roles at Premier Health through the years, most recently holding a dual role as interim president of Miami Valley Hospital as well as his current role. Johnson has served in various executive roles with progressively increasing responsibility since joining Premier Health in 2003. Prior to serving as chief human resource officer, she served as executive vice president and chief operating officer at Miami Valley Hospital, and before that, as vice president of operations at Good Samaritan Hospital.

The leadership structure of Premier Health Human Resources will now feature Vice President of Human Resources System Support Billie Lucente-Baker and Vice President of Human Resources Operations Stacey Lawson. Lucente-Baker will continue her responsibilities for talent acquisition for Premier Health, and Lawson will continue her responsibilities for the Miami Valley Hospital campuses.

At Miami Valley Hospital South, Chief Operating Officer Joann Ringer has been promoted to president of the campus, effective immediately. This new position more appropriately reflects the size and scope of both inpatient and outpatient services available at the facility.

Additionally, Lainie Dean has joined Premier Health as system vice president of strategic business development. She will be responsible for new growth strategies and business development initiatives such as the health system’s market-based plans, strategic market development, physician recruitment, and the physician relationship management program. Dean’s previous positions include executive director of operations and network development for Kettering Physician Network and director of supply market intelligence and performance management for Premier Health’s Strategic Sourcing Division.
