OrthoIndy Appoints John Ryan as New CEO

By OrthoIndy | | 10.20.21

OrthoIndy announced today that John Ryan has been appointed new CEO of the company. An experienced business leader, Ryan will assume responsibilities on January 1, 2022. He will share strategic and operational oversight with Dr. Edward Hellman, Board President, marking a return to a dyad leadership model with a physician president and a non-physician CEO.

Ryan comes to OrthoIndy from Hall, Render, Killian, Heath & Lyman, P.C., where he has been the President and Managing Partner since 2012. Under his leadership, Ryan grew the practice to become the largest healthcare-focused law firm in the country.

“John has had an extremely successful tenure as the leader of Hall Render,” said Dr. Hellman. “With this experience, he will bring a fresh perspective to the leadership team at OrthoIndy and help us successfully navigate the challenges we expect to face in the coming years.”

“I’m excited to join such a respected organization,” said Ryan. “In a time when we are seeing so much consolidation in healthcare, I am particularly impressed with OrthoIndy being committed to remain independent, actively pursuing to further grow its presence, and for its relentless determination to be the best value and most trusted resource for orthopedic care in the state. I very much look forward to the opportunity to support this effort with the OrthoIndy team.”

A lifelong Hoosier, Ryan received his law degree from Indiana University in 1998. He was named the 2021 Indianapolis Health Lawyer of the Year by Best Lawyers in America.
