October 11, 2011
Rochester General Health System, a nationally recognized leader in providing cardiac, cancer and overall medical care services, announces the appointment of Mark F. Klyczek to President of Newark-Wayne Community Hospital (NWCH), effective September 12, 2011.
With extensive experience in healthcare and financial administration, Klyczek joined NWCH as Administrator of the DeMay Living Center in June 2010. Under his leadership, a new short-term orthopaedic rehabilitation unit was launched that increased the Center’s ability to serve the community; and recorded satisfaction rates among DeMay residents and NWCH team members rose to 93 and 95 percent, respectively.
“Everyone who works with Mark Klyczek is impressed by his passion for advancing healthcare standards and administrative goals, while still creating a positive environment for our team members and the community they serve,” says Mark Clement, president and CEO of Rochester General Health System. “We’re thrilled that he has agreed to lead Newark-Wayne Community Hospital to new levels of excellence in service.”
“A thorough search process revealed that the ideal candidate to lead Newark-Wayne was already a valued member of our team,” says Robert Havrilla, Chairman of the Board of NWCH. “Mark Klyczek clearly stood out among a field of highly qualified candidates, thanks to his unique understanding of how Newark-Wayne can best serve the community and his proven affinity for leadership in the ongoing pursuit of excellence in healthcare.”
Prior to joining NWCH, Klyczek served for nine years in increasingly responsible roles in Buffalo’s Catholic Health System, including five years as Administrator of the St. Catherine Labouré skilled nursing facility within the Sisters of Charity Hospital organization. He earned a Master of Science Degree in Health Services Administration from D’Youville College, and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Canisius College.
“It’s impossible to work in western New York’s healthcare community and not be profoundly impressed by the consistent record of excellence achieved here at Rochester General Health System,” Klyczek says. “I was delighted to join the team last year, and I’m proud to accept this new role with Newark-Wayne Community Hospital.”
