Standing O is keeping the welcome light on

Welcome: John Goodwin is the new veep of operations at Interfaith Medical Center.

Bedford Stuyvesant

All aboard!

Standing O is keeping the porch lights on and welcoming the new veep of operations at Interfaith Medical Center, John Goodwin.

Steven Korf, the hospital’s president and CEO, got on the horn to let Standing O know that John will be overseeing operations of all levels and spearheading a multi-million-dollar capital project for major improvements that run the gamut from replacing aging equipment to fixing and sprucing up the infrastructure. It’s about time for a face lift for this grand dame. Improvements include replacing aging radiology equipment with a new MRI and two new CT scanners.

“I am delighted to welcome Mr. Goodwin,” Korf said. “I am confident that he will use every resource available to bring Interfaith up to the highest standards.” So is Standing O.

The new veep brings more than 25 years experience in hospital administration, having formerly served as a director of patient experience and culture at Brookhaven Memorial Medical Center; administrator for the Marilyn Shellabaeger Health Center, director of network planning and development at the Brooklyn Hospital Center, and Manager of admitting at Lenox Hill Hospital, among other stints.

Interfaith Medical Center [1545 Atlantic Ave. at Troy Avenue in Bedford Stuyvesant, (718) 613–4000].
