LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Oct. 24, 2017) – Louisville-based Baptist Health has named as its new CEO an executive of Wisconsin’s largest health care system.

Baptist said Gerard “Ger” Colman will step into his new role on Dec. 4. Colman is the chief operating officer of Aurora Health Care System in Milwaukee.

Colman replaces Steve Hanson, who left abruptly in March, a week after the local health system said it was eliminating 288 jobs, including 149 at its Louisville headquarters, as part of a realignment that was taking place in “a challenging financial environment.” Hanson had served as CEO since March 2013.
