Good Samaritan Medical Center Expands Leadership Team
Good Samaritan Medical Center is expanding its leadership team with the addition of Tom Sands, MBA, MHA, FACHE as Chief Operating Officer and Victoria Lobban of Rehoboth as Chief Financial Officer.
"Already both Tom and Vickey have proven to be valuable members of our leadership team,” said John Jurczyk, FACHE, president of Good Samaritan Medical Center. “They will both assist in the development and implementation of Good Samaritan Medical Center's strategic plan and our ongoing mission to serve the total healthcare needs of our communities."
Mr. Sands joins Good Samaritan Medical Center after serving 20 years with Navicent Health in Macon, GA. In his most recent role as Chief Professional Services Officer, Sands was responsible for the development and leadership of customer-focused services, diagnostic and therapeutic services, hospitality and support services, and operations for a private, 637 bed teaching facility.
Sands received his Bachelor of Science in Biology from Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA before earning master's degrees in both business administration and health administration from Georgia State University. He has relocated and currently resides in Easton.
Ms. Lobban has been a part of the Steward Health Care System for nearly 18 years serving in numerous financial accounting roles within the Steward Hospital Division. She began her career at Saint Anne’s Hospital in 1998. During the next several years, Vickey acquired increasing responsibility through a number of promotions and held positions as Interim Vice President of Finance at Norwood Hospital, and Vice President of Finance at New England Sinai Hospital in Stoughton. Given her experience and flexibility, Vickey was called upon to serve as the Vice President of Finance at Morton Hospital prior to bringing her valuable insight and experience to Good Samaritan.
“We are pleased to attract the talent and experience of high caliber health professionals like Tom and Vickey,” Jurczyk continued. “They have a combined demonstrated history of leadership and management which will complement the current senior leadership team at Good Samaritan Medical Center and allow us to serve the community as the premier regional choice for health care services.”
