New Brooksville Regional Hospital CEO aims to inspire, connect

BROOKSVILLE — He was chosen for his energetic and dedicated leadership style. Now, Patrick Maloney says he hopes to transform his patients' experience as the new chief executive officer at Brooksville Regional Hospital.

"I'm out talking with staff, looking at patient flow and identifying high performers," Maloney said, describing his first weeks on the job.

Hospital officials said they were looking for a strong leader to succeed Corey Lively, who left for a position in Oklahoma in January.

"Much of the work of a CEO is about inspiring others," said Alan Levine, senior vice president for parent company Health Management Associates. "Patrick has the ability to inspire people."

Maloney, 43, served most recently as CEO at Coral Springs Medical Center in South Florida, which is owned by Broward Health. Earlier, he served as vice president of corporate operations for Broward Health, where he supported the system's four hospitals and ambulatory centers.

"When he took over his last hospital, it suffered from low satisfaction from patients and employees," Levine said. Under Maloney's leadership tenure, he said, things improved.

For his part, Maloney says he was seeking a community hospital that would allow him to focus on both employee and patient satisfaction, two areas for which HMA was seeking a leader with a proven track record.

At the 120-bed Brooksville Regional, Maloney said, he hopes to continue to build upon the strengths he had already seen by his third week on the job. And he's making it known that he has an open-door policy.

"A lot of times, the staff feels disengaged from the CEO," Maloney said. He's determined to forge connections within the hospital and the community at large.

Maloney has a bachelor's degree in accounting from Widener University in Chester, Pa., and a master's degree in business administration from Temple University in Philadelphia.

He and his wife, Lynn, have two school-age children. His family will join him this summer after the children complete their school year.

"Lynn runs everything else so I can run the hospital," Maloney said. "My family is so supportive."

That support allows him to focus on work and building connections in and out of the hospital.

"I am 100 percent dedicated to improving the patient's experience," Maloney said. "I want every person treated like gold."
