On September 24, Kristin McManmon returns to St. Mary’s to begin her new role as Executive Vice President/COO. Earlier this year, Kristin left her position as St. Mary’s Vice President of Operations to accept a new position as Vice President–Heart, Vascular and Surgical Services for OhioHealth’s Riverside Methodist Hospital. Her family remained behind to finish out the school year. We are very fortunate that Kristin is able to rejoin her family and St. Mary’s Hospital here in Madison.
Kristin has a long history with SSM Health Care (SSMHC). Prior to coming to St. Mary’s, Madison, in 2007, she held administrative positions in SSMHC hospitals in St. Louis and Baraboo for 19 years. She holds a master’s degree in health care administration from St. Louis University and is a licensed nursing home administrator. While here at St. Mary’s, she became board certified in health care management as an American College of Healthcare Executives Fellow (FACHE).
Among her other St. Mary’s accomplishments is completion of the most extensive expansion in our St. Mary’s history, opened in 2008. Kristin also provided oversight for construction of the new Family Care Suites and Physician Resource Center, led planning for the Ronald McDonald Family Room scheduled to open this fall, managed significant growth for our cardiac program and co-led the regional SSM Health Care of Wisconsin Forward Award application process last year.
Kristin will be assuming responsibility now held by Jon Rozenfeld, who is leaving St. Mary’s August 28 for a new position in the Chicago area.
