Two Christiana Care leaders received American College of Healthcare Executives Regent’s Awards at a Healthcare Leadership Network of the Delaware Valley event in February.
Patty Resnik, MBA, MJ, FACHE, CPHQ, CHC, vice president, Care Management and Carelink CareNow Operations, received the 2019 Senior Level Healthcare Executive Regent’s Award.
Meredith Kydd-Hindelang, MHA, FHM, director of Operations for Christiana Care Hospitalist Partners, received the Early Career Health Care Executive Regent’s Award.
Resnik joined the health system 28 years ago as clinical manager of respiratory care. Her leadership journey at Christiana Care includes manager of Disease Management for the Christiana Care Health Plans managing chronic disease for the Medicaid population.
A promotion to corporate director of Performance Improvement and Case Management for the health system expanded her leadership responsibilities and prepared her for her current role as vice president of Care Management and Carelink CareNow. She was appointed to her current rank as vice president in 2013.
“Patty is an outstanding leader who has made significant contributions to the care of our neighbors through her work across quality, safety and population health,” said Mike Eppehimer, MHSA, FACHE, chief operating officer of The Medical Group of Christiana Care and ACHE Regent for Delaware.
Kydd-Hindelang was appointed director of Practice Operations for Hospital Medicine in 2017 and previously served as practice manager for Christiana Care Hospitalist Partners, joining the health system in 2012 after completing an administrative fellowship at Montefiore Medical Center in New York.
She is a graduate of the University of Delaware and received a Master of Health Administration from Hofstra University in 2011. She became a certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt in 2014.
“Meredith is a rising star among Christiana Care leaders and has had a tremendous, positive influence on the growth and operations of Christiana Care Hospitalist Partners,” said Eppehimer.
