After two and a half years at the helm, Ken Germano has
resigned as the President and CEO of the Medical Fitness Association, effective
June 1, 2013. Ken has cited the need to
care for his family and the pursuit of his PhD in Health Services and Public
Policy as the reasons for his departure.
During Ken’s tenure, the Medical Fitness Association has experienced a
rebranding with our new look, website and our expanded presence in the medical
fitness community. Additionally, the
growth of our Facility Certification program over the past two years has
significantly strengthened our organization.
Many thanks for all his hard work and dedication. We wish Ken great and continued success in
the pursuit of his goals.
At this time the
Board of Directors is excited to announce the appointment of Robert (Bob) D. Boone, FACHE, FMFA
as the interim President and CEO of the Medical Fitness
Association. Many of our members are
already familiar with Bob’s work in our field and he therefore, may not need an
introduction. For those who are not
familiar with Bob’s experience, you should know that he has worked for the last
26 years, rising through the ranks at FirstHealth of the Carolinas, Inc. to the
roles as Vice-President of Inpatient Services, Business Health Services and
Professional Services, as well as served as President of a private consulting
firm to the medically based fitness operations at numerous hospitals and integrated health
delivery systems. He holds Masters
Degrees in both Health Administration and Business Administration. Bob is one of the very early members of the
Medical Fitness Association, having served on the Board of Directors and as a
prior administrator of our organization.
We are pleased that Bob has agreed to offer his extensive expertise and
has agreed to step in to assume the leadership of the Medical Fitness
Association on an interim basis until we are able to identify a more long term
successor. We are looking forward to
same upward trajectory under Bob’s guidance that we have experienced over the
past administration. Information
regarding our selection process for a more permanent appointment will be
provided in the coming weeks.
Kind regards to all,
Chairman of the Board
