LANSING, Mich. (WZZM) -- Leslie Shanlian has been appointed CEO of the Michigan Veteran Health System in an effort to modernize the state's veteran facilities, state leaders say.
Officials announced Shanlian's assignment Wednesday morning, which is effective Oct. 26, according to a news release. She will oversee the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans in addition to the D.J. Jacobetti Home for Veterans in Marquette.

"Her leadership during this transition will reinforce MVAA's core values of innovation, inclusion and customer service for the veterans who live in the homes and the staff who provide quality long-term care there," said Jeff Barnes, director of the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency, in a statement.

Each home's day-to-day operations will be managed by a chief operating officer while Shanlian oversees procurement, finances marketing and reporting to both the state and the federal VA.
Shanlian, a licensed nursing home administrator, previously served as the deputy director of Aging and Adult Services Agency under Gov. Rick Snyder. She, too, was the associate executive director and administrator of Henry Ford Village in Dearborn.
The positions of Grand Rapids home administrator Sara Dunne and director of operations Eric Alderman were eliminated in September. A report issued this spring found significant problems, with some "residents explained there is no accountability for the administration and several residents are afraid to speak up for fear of retaliation."
A spokeswoman said the report did not dictate the leaders' departure.
