Dr. Michael Skehan was named senior vice president and senior physician executive for Martin Health System.

Dr. Skehan previously served as chief medical officer for Indiana University Health Quality Partners, a network of 2,750 physicians and other health care providers. In that role, he worked directly with physicians throughout Indiana on a variety of medical issues.

In his position at Martin Health, Dr. Skehan will work directly with the Martin medical staff, more than 300 affiliated physicians serving Martin and St. Lucie counties.

Dr. Skehan will also oversee Martin Medical Group, a contingent of more than 80 physicians and mid-level practitioners employed by the health system.

"Martin Health is known for the quality of care it offers to the community, which is largely a result of collaboration between the organization, physicians, and the clinical and support staff who care for patients on a daily basis," said Dr. Skehan.

"As health care continues to evolve, we want to ensure Martin Health is at the forefront of industry best practices that will allow us to maintain that high level of care for years to come."

Dr. Skehan attended New Jersey Medical School and completed his internship and residency at the Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pa. A rheumatologist by training, Dr. Skehan joined Arnett Clinic in Lafayette, Ind. in 1980 and served as chief medical officer for Arnett Health Plans from 1989 through 2004, and as president and CEO of Arnett Health System, a 160 provider multi-specialty group, until 2008.

While president, he oversaw the construction of a new $228 million full-service hospital. Dr. Skehan helped create the relationship between Arnett and Indiana University Health. He opened an integrated health care system with the flagship IU Health Arnett Hospital in 2008 and served as the system's first president and CEO.

Martin Health System is a not-for-profit, community-based health care organization that has served the region for more than 70 years.
