MEDINA – Mark Cye is now officially the chief executive officer of Orleans Community Health. He has been serving as the interim leader since Jan. 1.

The OCH board of directors on April 24 voted to make him the CEO.

“It was a unanimous decision by the board of directors,” said Dawn Meland, president of the board. “He demonstrates professionalism and vision for OCH and was instrumental in developing the affiliation with Rochester Regional Health. Mark understands the need for our community to continue to offer quality services close to home. He is an excellent manager with a strong financial background and is highly respected by our employees as well as the medical staff.”

Last month OCH entered into an affiliation with Rochester Regional Health. Through the agreement, Orleans Community Health will contract select health care services from Rochester Regional Health and its hospital in Batavia, United Memorial Medical Center.

Orleans Community Health remains its own independent organization under the terms of this agreement.

Cye has worked 20 years in healthcare, including an earlier stint as controller for OCH from 2006 to 2008.
