Premier Pulse     October 2022

Harlan_336x336Kevin Harlan has been named president of Atrium Medical Center after serving for the past two years at the helm of Upper Valley Medical Center.

Harlan served as UVMC’s president through much of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite that challenging public health emergency, the hospital strengthened its capabilities to enhance care to the community, achieving designations as a Level III trauma center and Level II cardiac cath lab and credentialing as a Primary Stroke Center. Under Harlan’s leadership, UVMC earned an “A” from Leapfrog in 2021 and 2022; had a successful Joint Commission tri-annual survey that put UVMC in the top 10% of surveyed hospitals; and successfully completed multiple major construction projects, including a completely renovated Special Care Nursery supported by community fundraising.

Previously, Harlan led the Grand Lake Health System as president and CEO. He earned his associate degree in radiology from Sinclair College, a bachelor’s degree in business and natural sciences from Wright State University, and a master’s degree in business administration from Central Michigan University. He is a member of numerous professional health care and community organizations, including the Greater Dayton Area Hospital Association board and executive committee; Hospice of Miami County Board; development boards in Troy and Piqua; and The Hundred Club of Miami County. Harlan will serve as UVMC’s interim president until his successor at that hospital is named.
