Park Slope

Let’s put our hands together and greet Robert Guimento, the new president of NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital.

The new prez is the former senior vice president and chief operating officer at the NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan hospital and now takes the helm at the Park Slope healing center. As the new head honcho, Guimento will be responsible for leadership and oversight of the voluntary, acute-care teaching hospital.

“Robert Guimento is a talented leader who is committed to putting patients and their families first,” said Dr. Steven J. Corwin, president and chief executive officer at the hospital. “As president he will lead an exceptional team of clinicians and staff focused on delivering the very best care to the people of Brooklyn.”

“I am excited and honored by this incredible opportunity to lead an outstanding group of professionals whose skill and dedication make NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital such a remarkable place,” said Guimento. “Together, we are committed to making sure Brooklynites know that world-class care is always just a few blocks away.”

Standing O wishes the new president a long and successful reign.

And another welcome

Standing O is shining the porch light for Claudia Schrader, PhD, as the new president of Kingsborough Community College. According to City University of New York Interim Chancellor Vita C. Rabinowitz, Schrader’s appointment follows “A highly accomplished 17-year career in the top ranks at two other CUNY community colleges.”

The new prez is currently provost and senior vice president for Academic and Student Success at Bronx Community College and previously served in senior positions at Medgar Evers College.

Born and raised in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, Dr. Schrader earned her Doctor of Education degree in international and transcultural studies from Columbia University. She takes the reins on Sept. 15.

“This is an exciting time at CUNY, marked by spectacular growth in enrollment, a remarkable expansion of our physical plant, national acclaim for our colleges and prestigious awards and grants earned by our students and faculty,” said William C. Thompson Jr., CUNY chairman of the board. “Dr. Schrader is a valuable addition to the cohort of energetic new leaders on our campuses embracing the University’s proud history and helping CUNY set the standard for quality and access in public higher education in the United States.”

“I’m proud to recommend Claudia Schrader to the Board to lead Kingsborough Community College,” said Rabinowitz. “She has a proven record as an innovative leader, particularly in areas that are vital to student success at community colleges. Dr. Schrader has led initiatives that have resulted in improved graduation rates and the rapid expansion of ASAP, and she helped create a more positive educational experience and campus climate for the students, faculty and staff at Bronx Community College.”
