MHA picks former state legislator as CEO

Former State Rep. Steven Walsh is the new president and CEO of the Massachusetts Health and Hospital Association.

The Massachusetts Health and Hospital Association has named a new president and CEO, as its longtime chief executive, Lynn Nicholas, is retiring.

MHA, the industry group representing hospital systems in the Bay State, said in a statement last week Steven Walsh was selected by the Board of Trustees following a six-month search. Walsh currently serves as executive director of the Massachusetts Council of Community Hospitals, a role he's held since 2014. Previously, he served six terms in the Massachusetts House of Representatives, representing the 11th Essex District. He was appointed chairman of the House Committee on Health Care Financing in 2011.

"At this time of unprecedented change and uncertainty in healthcare, my goal is to ensure our hospitals and health systems remain well positioned to deliver on their mission of providing exceptional care and service to patients," Walsh said in a statement.

A Lynn native, Walsh is a graduate of Wesleyan University, the New England School of Law and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.
