Having been instrumental in a major $80 million expansion project for HCA’s West Hills Hospital & Medical Center in Los Angeles to improve community services, including the construction of a new emergency department and ICU, plus the relocation of renowned Grossman Burn Center to the facility, Janice Balzano has the experience as Chief Operating Officer to merit the title.
She has also seen success as Chief Financial Officer at both Sutter Solano Medical Center and Sutter Delta Medical Center in Northern California, as well as in administrative roles in multy-specialty medical group practice settings with Sutter Medical Foundation and Family Doctor Medical Group.
And now, in a 2,163 mile move from the West Hills facility in Los Angeles to Brandon Florida, Janice has the opportunity to forge a new legacy as the newly appointed COO of Brandon Regional Hospital.
HCA made the announcement early last week.
Having been the first accredited hospital in Hillsborough County as a Chest Pain Center with PCI from The Society of Chest Pain Centers, Brandon Regional Hospital is a nice parallel for Janis’ experience.
The hospital was also esteemed highly by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons with a three-star award for excellence in cardiac surgery.
Other recognitions include Certification as a Primary Stroke Center by the Joint Commission amd the Bariatric Center of Excellence award by the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.
As part of her duties, Janice will assist in the daily operations of the newly renovated and expanded Women’s Center, including The Baby Suites, Level III NICU and new in-patient rooms for gynecology and anti-partum patients along with the newly added Reflux Center, the Behavioral Health Center and the Neuroscience Center and Heart & Vascular Center.
We wish you all the success in your new role, Janice.
