Connecticut hospital names interim CEO

Waterbury (Conn.) Hospital has selected Lester Schindel to serve as interim CEO.

This is the second time Mr. Schindel has assumed the role. He previously was interim CEO of Waterbury Hospital in 2017, after Los Angeles-based Prospect Medical Holdings acquired a majority of Greater Waterbury Health Network's assets, including Waterbury Hospital, the year prior.

Now he is stepping in for Peter Adamo, who was named CEO of Springfield, Pa.-based Crozer-Keystone Health System in February.

"I am excited to return to Waterbury Hospital and to the Waterbury community as interim CEO," Mr. Schindel said in a news release. "I look forward to building on the many positive clinical and operational gains that have resulted at Waterbury Hospital from Prospect's investment and stewardship, under Peter's leadership. I want to congratulate him on this well-deserved promotion. We have already begun the transition process with a plan to ensure a seamless change in leadership."

Earlier in his healthcare career, Mr. Schindel was president and CEO of Steward Holy Family in Methuen, Mass., and Merrimack Valley Hospital in Haverhill, Mass. He also served as COO of Metrowest Medical Center and COO of Leonard Morse Hospital, in Natick, Mass.

He has a master's degree in healthcare administration from George Washington University in Washington, D.C.
