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

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

The health system limited the candidate pool to internal candidates because it was confident it had a strong selection, 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."
