PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The board of directors of Rhode Island’s largest health system has named a new chairman.
Lifespan announced Wednesday that Lawrence Aubin Sr. was elected to head the board at its annual meeting. Aubin first joined the Rhode Island Hospital board of trustees in 1994, becoming vice chairman in 2005 and chairman in 2007. He became vice chairman of the Lifespan board in 2011.
For nearly 20 years he has chaired or co-chaired the Hasbro Children’s Hospital charity golf tournament, which has raised more than $5 million. He is also president and CEO of the Aubin Corp., a real estate firm in Seekonk, Massachusetts.
Aubin takes over from Scott Biren Laurans, who served a three-year term as chairman.
