MUSKEGON — Greg Loomis plans to retire at the end of June as president of Mercy Health Muskegon.

His retirement will end a career with the Muskegon health system that began when he was 17 years old and took a job in the storeroom of the former Hackley Community Hospital. His career included two major health care mergers and culminated with overseeing planning for a $271 million renovation and expansion of the Mercy hospital campus that began last year.

“Serving as president of Mercy Health Muskegon has been the highlight of my career,” Loomis said in a statement from Mercy Health announcing his retirement. “I take great pride in our colleagues and all that they tirelessly do to transform health care in our community. I look forward to continuing this work with my colleagues in the coming months.”

Mercy Health in 2014 named Loomis as president in Muskegon and he served as interim president for a year.

“Greg has been through every major development of our health system in Muskegon for nearly four decades,” said Roger Spoelman, president and CEO of Mercy Health. “His dedication, expertise and passion will be greatly missed. We are fortunate to have someone with his knowledge and history with our organization, and he will not be easily replaced.”

Mercy Health plans to conduct a national search for a new president in Muskegon.
