ELKINS PARK, Pa.—Rear Admiral Michael H. Mittelman, OD, MPH, will succeed Dr. Thomas L. Lewis as Salus University’s next president, according to the University’s Board of Trustees Chair Jo Surpin.

“With 32 years as a senior health care executive in the US Navy, Dr. Mittelman brings a wealth of experience to the position of president that includes clinical and research backgrounds,” she said.

An active duty member of the Armed Forces, Dr. Mittelman will complete his service with the Navy before beginning as Salus University president sometime in late spring or early summer 2013. In order to accommodate this timing and to ensure a smooth transition, Dr. Lewis has agreed to remain as president during this period.
