Venice Regional Announces Leadership Transitions



Following the state’s recent approval allowing Venice Regional Bayfront Health to proceed with building a replacement hospital in South Sarasota County, Bayfront Health Network CEO Joe Mullany has announced a leadership addition to facilitate the project. Current Venice Regional CEO Bob Moore will transition to a role focused on completing the replacement hospital project, while Karen Fordham will assume the post of hospital CEO. Moore joined Venice Regional as CEO in 2017. He previously served as CEO at Munroe Regional Medical Center in Ocala. Fordham has more than 20 years of experience in healthcare operations, mostly at hospitals in her home state of Michigan. Most recently, she served as CEO of St. Joseph Hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Under her leadership, Huron Valley Sinai Hospital achieved a 4-star HCAHPS rating—the only hospital in the Detroit Medical Center system to do so. The leadership transition will be effective September 1. With the community’s support, Venice Regional received state approval in July to proceed with building a 200-plus-bed hospital on East Venice Avenue, one-quarter mile east of Jacaranda Boulevard. Construction is slated to begin in late 2018 or early 2019, with a projected opening in early 2021.
