Catholic Health East, Newtown Square, Pa., named Robert Stanek, 50, to replace CEO Daniel Russell, who is set to retire at the end of December 2003. Stanek has been COO at the 31-hospital system since 2001 and executive vice president of its Mid-Atlantic division. "Because of the talent within the system, the board decided to focus its search exclusively on internal candidates -- on executives who understand us and believe in what we are trying to accomplish," CHE's board chairman, the Rev. Joel Ziff, said in a written statement. Stanek will be responsible for implementing a 10-year strategic plan including staff recruitment and retention efforts and an ongoing mission to improve charity care. -- Susanna Moon
