MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - UP Health System-Marquette has named its interim CEO.
Jerry Dooley will join the hospital June 19, according to a Wednesday morning news release.
UPHS says Dooley has been a part of the Duke LifePoint and LifePoint Health teams for more than a decade, serving as interim CEO for hospitals across the nation that are experiencing a leadership transition.
