CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Cleveland Clinic has rearranged leadership positions at two of its hospitals soon after announcing plans to acquire Medina General Hospital.

Euclid Hospital President Robert P. Stall will leave his position to lead Medina General. Joanne Zeroske is the new president at Euclid Hospital. Both positions begin Wednesday.

“We believe he is the right fit for this community and our hospital and through his leadership, we look forward to positioning Medina General Hospital to better meet the needs of this community, as well as strengthening it for future growth opportunities,” Charles Coleman Jr., board chairman at Medina General, stated in a release.

The Clinic touts Stall as someone who has grown patient volumes at Euclid while pleasing its staff. Employee satisfaction and engagement has been ranked the highest throughout the Cleveland Clinic regional hospitals, according to the health system.

Stall replaces Gary Hallman, who spent 16 years as Medina General’s president.

Zeroske is a registered nurse who has worked at the Clinic for 27 years, most recently as executive director of human resources operations. Like Stall, Clinic officials tout her ability to please both patients and employees.

“Because of her vast experience, she has a first-hand understanding of patient, physician and employee needs and operational expertise from her work with our regional hospitals and family health centers,” Fred DeGrandis, president and chief executive of Cleveland Clinic Regional Hospitals, stated in a release.
