McLaren Port Huron Begins Search for New President and CEO

Port Huron, MI —

McLaren Port Huron Hospital will soon be looking for new leadership as President and CEO Jennifer Montgomery has accepted a position elsewhere. Her tenure at McLaren Port Huron will end on July 31.

Montgomery has been with the hospital for 25 years serving in various leadership roles and gaining regional recognition. She oversaw a major expansion at McLaren Port Huron and set the path for national verification as a Level III Trauma Center.

In her announcement of resignation, Montgomery said, “Together, we have made significant strides toward growing our footprint over the last five years to provide greater access to high-quality health care in the Blue Water community.” Montgomery has accepted a position as President and Chief Executive Officer at St. Luke’s Hospital in Maumee, Ohio, which recently joined McLaren Health Care.

When asked about the search process for finding a new leader, Mona Armstrong, Chairwoman of the Board of Directors, said that the Board, together with McLaren Health Care, is in the initial stages of the executive search process. Armstrong said, “This is an extremely important position that greatly impacts our community.” She said that they “are committed to finding the individual best suited to continue the phenomenal work happening here at our hospital.”
