Officials at WellSpan Health have announced the appointment of Jane E. Hyde, a Wisconsin health care executive with more than 35 years of experience, as a senior vice president for the health system and president of Gettysburg Hospital.
Hyde, who will officially join Central Pennsylvania’s largest health care organization in September, was selected through a national search process, which included participation by members of the Gettysburg Hospital Board of Directors and members of WellSpan’s senior management team. She succeeds Kevin H. Mosser, M.D., who became WellSpan’s executive vice president and chief operating officer in January 2011.
Since 2000, Hyde has served Agnesian HealthCare in Fond du Lac, WI, an integrated health care organization that includes three hospitals, a long-term care facility, eight retail pharmacies, 140 physician practices and other ambulatory health care centers and services. Most recently, Hyde held the position of senior vice president of strategic development and community affairs. She has also served as chief executive officer of Agnesian HealthCare Enterprises, a retail subsidiary of Agnesian Healthcare, and as chief operating officer of Sun Home Health/Hospice Services in Northumberland, Pa.
In addition to her leadership responsibilities at Agnesian HealthCare, Hyde has been an active member of her local community, having served on the boards of directors for St. Mary’s Springs High School, the Fond du Lac Area YMCA, the Windhover Center for the Arts and the Women’s Fund of the Fond du Lac Community Foundation. She has also served as a volunteer for Hospice Home of Hope in Fond du Lac.
“We are fortunate to have the opportunity to welcome into our community and organization a health care leader as talented and committed to the general mission of non-profit health care as Jane Hyde,” said Mosser. “We believe that the values that Jane holds are consistent with those of our organization and we are happy to have her join our health system.”
As president of Gettysburg Hospital, Hyde will assume responsibility for the day-to-day operation of the community hospital, which serves the residents of Adams County and northern Maryland. She will also maintain relationships with community organizations, agencies and stakeholder groups in support of Gettysburg Hospital and WellSpan Health’s mission to improve the health and quality of life of the greater Adams County region. As a senior vice president of WellSpan Health, Hyde will actively participate in the operating leadership of the integrated health system.
“The members of the search committee are excited to welcome Jane to Gettysburg Hospital and to our community,” said Ronald Hankey, chairman of the Gettysburg Hospital Board of Directors and member of the search committee. “We think she will be an outstanding representative of the hospital and will serve our community well in her leadership position."
Hyde holds a bachelor’s degree from Lock Haven University, Lock Haven, Pa., and a master’s degree in public administration from Marywood University, Scranton, Pa.
