Englewood, NJ – January 9, 2012 -- The Englewood Hospital and Medical Center Board of Trustees announced today that the current Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Warren Geller has been named President and Chief Executive Officer of Englewood Healthcare System and Englewood Hospital and Medical Center. The current Chief Executive Officer Douglas A. Duchak will transition to a new role in fundraising, as he joins the team at the Englewood Hospital and Medical Center Foundation.

The EHMC Board announced in May, 2012, that as part of its leadership succession plan, Mr. Geller would assume this role on January 1, 2014 and Mr. Duchak would transition to the Foundation. It has moved up this plan to be effective one year earlier, on January 1, 2013, allowing Mr. Geller to lead the Medical Center at a pivotal time as it embarks on a major expansion plan. Also, this will permit Mr. Duchak to devote his full time to the Foundation.

“Our Board of Trustees is delighted to welcome Warren to his new role and look forward to his leadership at this exciting time in our growth and progress,” said Thomas C. Senter, Chairman of the Board of Englewood Hospital and Medical Center. “At the same time, we want to thank Doug for his 21 years of service, including nine years as President and CEO and for his contributions to health care in our region. We look forward to his continued contributions to EHMC and the communities we serve in his Foundation role.”

Mr. Geller joined Englewood as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer in 2009. He was previously a Senior Vice President at Northern Westchester Hospital and he was for ten years prior a Director at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Manhattan. In his prior role at Englewood Hospital, he was responsible for day-to-day operations and many of Englewood Hospital's recent strategic initiatives.

“I am excited about the opportunity to lead an institution where I have spent the last four years,” said Mr. Geller. “I also look forward to playing a key role in expanding EHMC’s prominence in delivering state-of-the-art health care solutions to the surrounding communities and in working with all the dedicated professionals who are committed to providing the highest level of compassionate and excellent care to our patients.”
