Lippman, who also has served as director of the Health-Care Administration academic program at The University of Toledo for the last 10 years, began his new responsibilities July 5.

“Darryl has substantial experience in developing successful partnerships with physicians, hospitals and other health-related organizations,” said Dr. Scott Scarborough, senior vice president and UTMC executive director. “He will begin the critical work of pursuing new and important clinical relationships that further our mission and identity us as a patient-centered, university-quality medical center.”
