A health system’s board of directors has elected new officers and added two new members.

Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids said yesterday that Richard “Dick” M. DeVos, Jr. has been named chairman of the Spectrum Health System Board of Directors.

DeVos was elected to a two-year term.

The system board also elected current members Bob Roth as vice chairman and Beth Nickels as treasurer.

Both positions are two-year terms.

Roth and Nickels joined the system board in 2011.

DeVos joined the system board in 2010.

He is an emeritus member of both the Spectrum Health Foundation Board of Trustees and Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital Foundation Board of Trustees, where he also served as chair.

They will each serve a three-year term.
