Dear Team Punta Gorda,

It is with an exceptional amount of pride that I announce to you that our Director of Environmental Services, Kirk Stander, has been promoted within his parent company, Hospital Housekeeping Systems, to Bayfront Health Port Charlotte.  Effective Monday, May 12th, Kirk will take over as the Director at Port Charlotte, which is a bigger Facility that will offer him more responsibility along with career advancement.  This is an extremely well deserved promotion and I know Port Charlotte is gaining an outstanding asset.  Kirk has been a true team player at our Facility and his leadership skills are among some of the best I have seen.  While we are sorry to see him go, he will still be within the Market and will continue to work collaboratively with us on a day to day basis.  Best of Luck Kirk!  We wish you nothing but the best!

I am also very proud to announce that Donny Long, will also be promoted from Assistant Director of Environment Services at Bayfront Health Punta Gorda, to Director.  I could not be more pleased as we are simply replacing a fantastic Director with another amazing Leader cut from the same cloth.  Donny has proven to be one of the most reliable people in the hospital…if you call Donny, he’s on it immediately!  I’m very excited for both Kirk and Donny and I have zero doubt that this transition will be anything but smooth.

Thank you and have a wonderful weekend!

All the best,

Chris Loftus

Interim Chief Executive Officer
