The chief medical executive succeeds Casey Ryan, who was president for 17 years. Lunn's first day will be Jan. 1, 2015. 

 

"I'm humbled and honored," he said.

The hope was to find someone who has the technical skills to do this job but also adopt well to the culture, according to Kris Compton, Altru chairwoman. 

The health system limited the candidate pool to internal candidates because it was confident they had strong internal candidates, she said. 

Lunn said Altru employees owe much to Ryan's leadership and expertise.

"We have a vision to deliver world class care, he said. "With 4,100 employees, we're well on our way to working toward a world-class organization."
