"The MHMC Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Lynn McVey has been appointed Acting President and CEO of our facility," said MHMC spokesman Bill Maer. "The entire hospital community looks forward to working with Lynn McVey as she takes on her new leadership role, with the goal of making Meadowlands one of the top hospitals in this region."
McVey most recently served as vice president of operations for MHMC. Maer said her subject matter expertise of evidence-based management is timely in today's turbulent healthcare climate. Prior to her work at MHMC, she gained three decades of health care experience, working at several area hospitals, including Palisades Medical Center, St. Mary's Hospital and St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center.
"I look forward to working with the many dedicated members of the Meadowlands Hospital staff as we continue to transform the facility into a leading healthcare provider in Northern New Jersey," McVey said. "My priority is to work with the Board of Directors to move their vision forward as I take on this new responsibility as the acting president of Meadowlands Hospital Medical Center."
McVey has lectured extensively and has been widely published on various healthcare related issues. McVey received her Bachelor of Science degree from William Paterson University and will receive her masters degree in health management from the College of St. Elizabeth in 2012.
"The MHMC Board wants to thank Tom Gregorio for his work over the last two years in helping to make the hospital a quality healthcare facility," said Maer, who noted that Gregorio will serve as a member of the MHMC Community Advisory Board. "In one year, the new MHMC has not only improved the quality of patient care and been an active member of the Hudson and Bergen County community; it also has successfully increased the number of patients using the hospital."
