MEDINA — Mark Cye, CEO/CFO of Orleans Community Health, has resigned effective July 28. Cye joined Orleans Community Health as chief financial officer a little over five years ago and has held the duel title of CEO/CFO for over two years.

Cye, who was trained in finance, was presented with an opportunity to secure the CFO position at Warren General Hospital, which is an $80 million operation in Warren, Pa.

Cye has enjoyed his time and roles at Orleans Community Health and is excited to get back to the finance role. Cye credits the hospital’s movement in the right direction, over the past couple years, to the continuous support of the staff at Orleans Community Health.

In the past two years the hospital has been able to improve financially and has been able to provide new programs and services to the community such as the Wound Care Center, podiatry, and the nursing home achieving a four-star rating with the New York State Department of Health.

Mark Shurtz, the current chief information officer and corporate compliance officer, will be stepping up as the interim CEO. Cye is confident with Shurtz’s ability to fulfill this role as he has been working closely with Cye over the past year.

Shurtz has been with Orleans Community Health as the CIO and corporate compliance officer since 2014. He brings with him 20 years of management experience spanning across military, legal and healthcare backgrounds.

He is looking forward to the continued support of our staff and is excited at the opportunity to work with the community and find ways to keep Orleans Community Health a valuable asset for the community.
