Welcome to the New Members of Our Senior Leadership Team

I’d like to extend a warm welcome to our new Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Laurie R. Beyer, BS, MBA, CPA, who recently joined us. Laurie is an accomplished, results-oriented executive with more than 25 years of experience. She came to our HealthCare System from Union Hospital of Cecil County, where she served as Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for 11 years. During that time, she developed high-performing finance and revenue cycle teams, facilitated the conversion to the HSCRC’s Total Patient Revenue System, and led the successful implementation of the hospital’s electronic medical record.

Please join me in extending a warm welcome to Laurie!

Congratulations to Stacey McGreevy 
Stacey McGreevy, CPA, was recently named Vice President of Support Services at GBMC HealthCare. During her more than 20-year tenure at GBMC, Stacey has held a number of important roles including Manager of Finance and Regulatory Compliance, Director of Internal Audit and Compliance, and Chief Audit, Compliance and Privacy Officer. She developed GBMC’s first Internal Audit Department and Compliance Program and facilitated the establishment of an independent Audit and Compliance Committee of the Board of Directors. Most recently, she served as GBMC’s Administrator for Ancillary and Support Services, a position that oversees a $50 million annual budget and is responsible for oversight of construction management. Her leadership in GBMC’s strategic deployment process resulted in over $2 million in savings in purchased services and pharmaceutical expenses over the past year and she has been instrumental in overseeing a vast array of major construction projects. In her new role as Vice President, she will lead the design of a new supply chain system and facilitate the updating of GBMC’s Master Facility Plan. 

Celebrating Nurse Practitioner Week

Nurse practitioners (NPs) offer vital and reliable care and from November 12-18th,  which marks National Nurse Practitioner Week, we are given the opportunity to reflect on the roles of nurse practitioners whose tireless efforts often go unrecognized.

Please join me in celebrating GBMC’s outstanding Nurse Practitioners this week. Across our nation, there are more than 200,000 NPs who provide care to millions of Americans. We have excellent Nurse Practitioners working in our hospital, in our physician practices, and at Gilchrist. They help us move closer to our vision of a patient-centered system of care every day. 

Another Successful Nearly New Sale
I’d also like to take a moment to recognize all of those involved in making the Fall 2017 Nearly New Sale an outstanding success.

For those of you that don’t know, there is much that has to happen to make this event a success. Twice each year, GBMC employees, volunteers, and the general public get an opportunity to buy everything from furniture, clothing, and jewelry to appliances, sporting goods, toys, and much more — all at nominal prices. Under the leadership of our Director of Volunteer Services, Carmen Baeza, the team collects donations, sorts and prices them, and stocks them on the shelves. As soon as the fall sale ends, volunteers begin preparing for our next sale in the spring. GBMC volunteers devote hundreds of hours to these events that benefit the programs in our HealthCare System.

I am proud to say that the fall sale raised approximately $144,000 in proceeds! I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the co-chairs for Nearly New, Joanne Lynch and Dirck Ten Broeck, as well as Sarellen Levine, the Nearly New representative on the Auxiliary Board, and all of the volunteers at Nearly New who work so hard to prepare for each sale!

Turkey Distribution...
Thanksgiving spirit was in full swing during GBMC’s annual employee turkey distribution on November 9 and 10. About 3,500 turkeys were given out to staff as tokens of appreciation for the hard work you do daily to ensure that ”to every patient, every time we provide the care that we would want for our own loved ones.” Thank you!
