Hill's selection was announced by Gerald Piesko, D.O., Chairman of the HealthPlus board of directors.

"The Board has the utmost confidence that Bruce and his executive team will effectively lead our organization through this transition," Piesko said, noting that Hill has served as Vice President with a broad range of executive responsibilities for HealthPlus since 1994.

"Bruce's in-depth knowledge of health-plan management -- along with his impressive experience in growing revenue, introducing new products, and developing constructive relationships with both purchasers and health-care providers -- should prove to be invaluable assets as HealthPlus moves forward," said Piesko.

"It is truly an honor and privilege for me to serve HealthPlus as its Interim President and CEO, and to work with our team to continue the high level of performance and value we've achieved," Hill said. "While Michigan's economic conditions are challenging, I view the future as full of opportunities, and am confident that HealthPlus is well-positioned to capitalize on its many strengths.

"Among these strengths are rankings of quality and service to our members that are among the highest in America," Hill continued. "In addition, through the focused work of a very talented and dedicated team of employees and an outstanding group of physicians and hospitals, we have secured a strong financial position from which to operate."

Before joining HealthPlus, Hill, 46, served for five years as director of business development and trauma emergency services at Southwest Washington Medical Center near Portland, Ore.

Prior to that, he was senior consultant at Wheaton Franciscan Services, Inc., a large Catholic health system in the Chicago area. He began his career working with the executive team at Hurley Medical Center in Flint, Mich., in the 1980s.

A native of Saginaw, Mich., Hill earned his bachelor's degree in Economics and master's degree in Health Services Administration at the University of Michigan in 1986 and 1988, respectively. In 2000, he earned the designation of Certified Managed Care Executive from the American Association of Health Plans.

Hill and his wife, Angela, reside in Saginaw with their five children: Ashley, Natalie, Austin, Connor and Mara.
