Lancaster-based Hospice & Community Care has promoted Michael Link to COO.
Link, who has been with the organization since 2001, previously served as vice president and chief administrative officer.
In his new role, Link will be responsible for the operational oversight of Clinical and Medical Services, Information Technology, Education, Health Information Management, and the Liaison departments.
“Michael is a tremendous asset to the organization and community,” said Steve Knaub, president and CEO, Hospice and Community Care. “Chief Operating Officer is a new position for the organization, and I am confident that Michael’s leadership, operational expertise and knowledge of the organization will play a vital role in helping to expand and evolve our services to patients and families in Lancaster and York counties and the surrounding areas.”
Early in his career, Link was an integral part of the original team that helped transition all Hospice and Community Care clinicians onto an electronic medical record. It was within that project that Link discovered his passion for elevating staff to reach their fullest potential by helping them navigate change, Hospice & Community Care said.
Link has an associate degree in Programming and Database and a bachelor’s degree in Applied Management from Pennsylvania College of Technology and is currently pursuing his MBA.
