Sinner led organization during time of growth and change

MEDINA – Jim Sinner, CEO of Medina Memorial Hospital and its parent organization Orleans Community Health the past 15 years, resigned on Monday.

The board of directors has hired HealthTech Management Services to manage the hospital and healthcare organization, an agreement that could be as short as six months or as long as three years, with chances to extend the relationship beyond this initial contract.

HealthTech will provide interim management support, help assess the hospital’s current operations and identify options to assure “a strong strategic future for continued healthcare services in the Orleans County region,” according to a statement from the hospital.

Sinner resigned to pursue other career opportunities, said Bruce Krenning, the board chairman.

“The board appreciates Jim Sinner’s 15 years of service to Orleans Community Health and wishes him the best,” Krenning said.

Orleans Hub will post more information, including an interview from the interim CEO, soon.
