The Minnesota Hospital Association recently named as its president and CEO Rahul Koranne, M.D., who has served as senior vice president of medical affairs and chief medical officer for the association since 2015. He succeeds Lawrence Massa, who retired in September and died Nov. 22. Koranne has 20 years of health care experience spanning the continuum of care. 

“Rahul’s experience includes leadership in both a large health system and one of Minnesota’s smallest critical access hospitals,” said MHA Board Chair Sara Criger, senior vice president, Allina Health, and president, Mercy Hospital and United Hospital. “In addition, Rahul brings the leadership qualities the board of directors was seeking as well as a deep commitment to our mission of improving the health of Minnesotans. He will accelerate the association’s strong collaboration with other health care stakeholders in Minnesota.”
