Cathy Sunlin New VP of Regulatory Services


The Health Care Association of Michigan (HCAM) is pleased to announce Cathy Sunlin will be the new VP of Regulatory Services.

Sunlin has more than thirty years of health care experience across a range of settings, with eighteen plus years in the senior care/elder care field. Most recently, Sunlin was a regional clinical director for NexCare Health Systems. She has experience in oversight and development of clinical excellence in settings ranging across the continuum of healthcare, including inpatient, ambulatory care, physician practice, rehabilitation, long-term care and post-acute rehabilitation.

Sunlin’s service as a senior examiner team leader for the National Silver Quality Award program through the American Health Care Association will be very helpful for those members interested in advancing through the process. She was also a core team member and instructor for HCAM’s Civil Monetary Penalty Grant program focused on reducing re-hospitalization rates in Michigan.

“Cathy’s unique skills and experience will be the perfect fit for this position,” said Melissa Samuel, HCAM President/CEO. “She is incredibly knowledgeable and will be a strong voice for us on regulatory and quality improvement issues on both state and federal levels. We are excited to have her join our team and begin to serve our members in this new capacity.”

Sunlin earned her Master of Science in Management degree from Cornerstone University, a Bachelor of Science, Healthcare Administration from St. Joseph College and an Associate of Arts, Nursing from Southwestern Michigan College.

Sunlin is both a registered nurse and a licensed nursing home administrator. She was recognized with the MINADONA Nurse Administrator of the Year Award in 2014.

Sunlin will start her position on April 9th.
