David M. Zechman, FACHE
President and CEO

David M. Zechman, FACHE, joined McLaren Northern Michigan in November 2013. His 35 years of health care and leadership experience combined a proven track record in hospital and health system executive management with a passion for quality and service excellence.

Prior to joining McLaren Northern Michigan, Zechman served as President and CEO of Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) in West Plains, Missouri beginning in 2008. Formerly, he served as the President and CEO of the recently renamed Lakeside Medical Center, the sole county hospital in Palm Beach County, Florida. In addition, he has held senior management positions at Jewish Hospital and St. Mary's HealthCare in Louisville, Kentucky, and at St. Luke's Health System in Kansas City, Missouri. Through these past roles, he was successful leading a health system offering a full continuum of care, and perhaps more importantly, has a thorough understanding of the challenges facing health care delivery in the rural environment.

Zechman is a Fellow in the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) and served the Missouri Hospital Association (MHA) as president of the Southwest District, member of the Finance Committee, and secretary of the Management Services Corporation Board. He has an undergraduate degree in Education from Miami University and a Masters of Public Administration from Cleveland State University.

This program has been developed and is presented locally by Great Lakes Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives.
