Mass. Hospital Association names new CEO

By Jeffrey Krasner, Globe Staff

The Massachusetts Hospital Association today selected Lynn B. Nicholas, former head of the American Diabetes Association, to be its chief executive.

Nicholas was the top outside candidate from a search that began in January, when the board of trustees of the hospital association fired then-CEO Ronald M. Hollander.

Nicholas also formerly headed the Louisiana Hospital Association.

When the board voted today, the choice was between Nicholas and Robert Gibbons, a longtime MHA lobbyist who has been interim CEO since January.
