BJC HealthCare has named Jim Sinek, a long-time hospital executive, as Boone Hospital’s new president. Sinek has served as a hospital CEO for about 14 years. He comes to Columbia from Faith Regional Health Services, a 200-bed facility in Norfolk, Neb., two hours northeast of Omaha.
At Faith Regional, Sinek recently oversaw the addition of a new 5-story patient tower and the implementation of an electronic medical records system. Boone Hospital's Vice President of Human Resources Michelle Zvanut said those experiences made Sinek stand out in the pool of applicants.
President of Boone Hospital Center Dan Rothery announced this week he will be leaving his position.
Rothery has taken a new leadership position with BJC HealthCare in Saint Louis. One of the company’s Group Presidents Bob Cannon said Rothery will serve as president of home care and community services.
“Another area he will be responsible for are BJC Behavioral Health Services and then there’s BJC Corporate Health Services," Cannon said.
