Morton Plant North Bay Hospital gets new president

NEW PORT RICHEY — Morton Plant North Bay Hospital has appointed Michael Yungmann its new president effective Jan. 6. Yungmann will replace Hal Ziecheck, who announced his retirement earlier this year.

Yungmann comes to Morton Plant North Bay from Southside Regional Medical Center in Petersburg, Va., where he was chief executive officer of the 300-bed facility. As president of Morton Plant North Bay, Yungmann will be responsible for leadership and day-to-day operations of the 154-bed hospital.

"Mike brings a great combination of clinical, administrative and Pasco County experience to Morton Plant North Bay," Glenn Waters, president of BayCare Health System's hospital division, said in a news release.

Yungmann's hospital experience also includes Lake Wales Medical Center, Poplar Bluff Regional Medical Center, Lehigh Regional Medical Center and Pasco Regional Medical Center. "Michael is familiar with the Pasco community and we believe his understanding of the community will be very helpful as we continue to work to improve the health of Pasco county residents," said Marc Bowman, chairman of the Morton Plant North Bay board.

Ziecheck will assist Yungmann with the transition process.

Yungmann holds a bachelor's of health science degree in physical therapy from the University of Florida and a master's degree in business administration from Saint Leo University. He is a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives and serves on the board of the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association.
