Noseworthy Named CEO for Bert Fish Medical Center
Ed Noseworthy, current administrator for 225-bed Florida Hospital East Orlando, has accepted the position of CEO for Bert Fish Medical Center in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. He will officially assume responsibilities on January 2, 2011.
Noseworthy has served with Adventist Health System for more than 29 years, in various roles including administrator of Florida Hospital DeLand, administrative director of management and support services at Florida Hospital Celebration Health, administrative director of nutritional services at Florida Hospital and associate director of nutritional services at Hinsdale Hospital.
Since joining Florida Hospital East Orlando in 2004, Noseworthy has guided the $90 million patient tower expansion, renovated and grown the OR, as well as led the hospital towards a 33% growth in Admissions and 31% growth in ED Visits.
"Ed has been a tremendous asset to Florida Hospital and we are looking forward to utilizing his dynamic abilities here at Bert Fish Medical Center," says Daryl Tol, President/CEO of Adventist Health System’s Volusia/Flagler Region and Board Chairman for Bert Fish Medical Center. "In addition to his operational successes, he infuses a passion and energy for our mission of extending Christ’s healing ministry that will help seamlessly transition Bert Fish Medical Center into our network of care."
Noseworthy’s first priorities will be to reinforce community partnerships, continue the transition of the hospital with Adventist Health System functions and systems, assess the hospital’s needs for success and strengthen the cancer and cardiac programs.
Noseworthy and his wife Shawn, who have two grown children, are looking forward to the opportunities this transition will bring.
"Our family has been richly blessed by our time here in Orlando," says Noseworthy. "I am excited about returning to Volusia County, reconnecting with the community and working with such a skilled and professional team of people that are all unified in our mission to serve."
