New interim hospital leader says Medina Memorial/Orleans Community Health offers numerous services
As the new interim CEO/President of Orleans Community Health, I would like to introduce myself and share some of the upcoming plans for our health system.
I have over 20 years of healthcare experience in various financial roles and I worked as the controller for Orleans Community Health from 2006 – 2008. After that, I was the controller for BryLin Hospital for 7 years and have been back at OCH working as the Chief Financial Officer for the past 3 years. I live and grew up in Lockport and look forward to the opportunity to serve as CEO.
As a 25-bed critical access rural hospital we provide services to Orleans, northern Genesee, and eastern Niagara counties. We strive for the best possible outcomes and our goal is to treat every patient as an individual with compassion and high-quality health service every time they come through our doors.
Medina Hospital has been a proud part of the community since 1908. While we have evolved over the years to meet the changing environment in health care, our commitment to ensuring our patients receive personalized, high quality care will be ongoing.
We continue to make strategic and necessary investments in technology, improve our physical space (lobby renovations and the ER), add new services, recruit new providers, as well as focusing on staff education and development in order to provide the best possible care for our community members.
Orleans Community Health remains an active participant in community endeavors and we strive to contribute to the health and wellness of our community.
Our current services include: 24/7 Emergency Services, NYS Designated Stroke Center, Residential Care Unit (North Wing), Lake Plains Dialysis Centers in Batavia and Medina, Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy, Nutritional Counseling, Diabetes and Pre-Diabetes Education, Cardiac Services, Cancer Services Program, Community Partners Wellness Programs, Surgical Services, Transitional Care Unit, Imaging Services/X-Ray (MRI, CT scan, Digital Mammography, Nuclear Medicine, Ultrasonography, Echocardiography), Albion Walk-In Medical Center (Primary Care, Occupational Health, Lab, X-Ray, Physical Therapy), Lab services (Albion, Medina and Middleport), Respiratory Services and Health Insurance Assistance through the NYS of Health.
It is my sincere honor to serve as the CEO at Orleans Community Health. We thank you for your past support and look forward to continuing to serve the community with the best possible health care close to home…So Much. So Near.
