Since AMITA Health announced its new regionalized structure in early August, we have conducted a far-reaching search for executive leaders with the skills and experience to oversee our three operating regions (Chicago Metro, Northwest and South) and our post-acute care division. I’m pleased to announce we have completed our search, and four highly qualified health-care executives will be joining us soon in these new leadership positions.
Michelle Hereford will take on the role of Vice President, Post Acute Care Officer, overseeing LTACH, rehabilitation, home health, palliative care and hospice (including Holy Family Medical Center Des Plaines, Alexian Brothers Rehabilitation Hospital Elk Grove Village, Alexian Brothers Hospice Residence Elk Grove Village and other AMITA Health rehabilitation, home health, palliative care and hospice programs). Michelle also will oversee laboratory services, which are part of the post-acute care division under our new organizational structure. Scott, Polly, Herbert and Michelle will be responsible for executing strategies established by our system’s leadership team.
Herbert Buchanan will become senior vice president and ROO for our South region (including Adventist Medical Center Bolingbrook, Adventist Medical Center Hinsdale, Adventist Medical Center La Grange, Saint Joseph Medical Center Joliet and St. Mary’s Hospital Kankakee.)
Polly Davenport will be senior vice president and ROO for our Northwest region (including Adventist Medical Center GlenOaks, Alexian Brothers Medical Center Elk Grove Village, Mercy Medical Center Aurora, St. Alexius Medical Center Hoffman Estates and its Alexian Brothers Women & Children’s Hospital, and Saint Joseph Hospital Elgin).
Scott Teffeteller will serve as senior vice president and regional operating officer for our Chicago Metro region (including Resurrection Medical Center Chicago, Saint Francis Hospital Evanston, Saint Joseph Hospital Chicago and Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center Chicago).
