(BROOKLYN, NY – JUNE 22, 2011) Maimonides President and CEO Pamela S. Brier, and SUNY Downstate President John C. LaRosa, MD, jointly announced today that Dominick Stanzione, the Interim President and Chief Restructuring Officer for Long Island College Hospital, will be stepping down from that position in July to become the new Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Maimonides Medical Center.
Mr. Stanzione has over 30 years of senior management experience, much of it in community hospitals with large teaching programs. Originally trained and educated as a Physical Therapist at SUNY Downstate, Mr. Stanzione went on to earn a Master in Public Administration Degree at New York University. He then began a series of progressively more senior roles at several hospitals in the Bon Secours Health System and Catholic Medical Centers of Brooklyn and Queens. For the last three years, Mr. Stanzione has served as Interim President and Chief Restructuring Officer at Long Island College Hospital (LICH) which recently merged with SUNY Downstate Medical Center.
"All of us here at SUNY Downstate want to thank Dominick Stanzione for the excellent job he has done during his tenure at Long Island College Hospital and especially for his tireless efforts to ensure that LICH will survive and prosper in its merger with SUNY Downstate,” said Dr. LaRosa. “We have known Dominick for many years now and we wish him well in his new position."
“I am particularly happy about the appointment of Dominick,” said Ms. Brier, “because in addition to being skilled and experienced in hospital management, he is energetic and eager to fully participate in the Maimonides community. He will be a terrific partner and I am looking forward to August 15th, the date when he will join us.”
Now celebrating its Centennial, Maimonides Medical Center is among the largest independent teaching hospitals in the nation – training over 450 interns, residents and fellows annually. Widely recognized for its major achievements in advancing medical and information technology, Maimonides has 711 beds and over 70 subspecialty programs.
