Carty Names Schneider Center Management Team

Nov. 26, 2007 — Amos Carty, Schneider Regional Medical Center president and chief executive officer, announced appointments to his newly assembled senior management team.
Carty was named to the top post after Rodney Miller resigned in September to take over as administrator and CEO of Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, Fla. Carty has been the institute's general counsel for eight years and chief operating officer for the past five years, working closely with Miller.
Of the five new officers announced, all except one are in-house promotions. WVWI radio talk show host Sam Topp, a former seven-year board member, will head public relations. The position is part time; Topp will continue his weekly talk show.
Angela Rennalls-Atkinson, former vice president for nursing and patient care services, will take over Carty's former post as chief operation officer.
Blondell Williams, former clinical care coordinator, will take over Renalls-Atkinson's former post as vice president for nursing and patient care services.
Elizabeth J. Harris, former director of radiology and physiological testing has been named vice president for quality and performance improvement.
Adeline L. Williams-Connor, former performance improvement officer, will be director of the center's Educational Institute.
Rennalls-Atkinson joined the Schneider Regional senior leadership team in 2003, when she was recruited from Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center in New York, where she was assistant vice president of nursing for seven years. She has 30 years of experience in acute care, ambulatory care and home care.
Rennalls-Atkinson holds a bachelor's degree in nursing from City College of New York and a master of science from Long Island University. She was named 2007 Professional of the Year in Nursing by Cambridge Who's Who.
Blondell Williams is a veteran of the former Knud Hansen Hospital, the forerunner of the Roy L. Schneider institute, where she began her career 28 years ago. In her former post as clinical care coordinator, Williams supervised nursing functions in the emergency room, hermodialysis unit and the interventional radiology department.
Elizabeth J. Harris, a St. Thomas native, was recruited from Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Md., where she was clinical director of imaging services for 25 years. She earned her degree in radiologic technology from Mercy, before going on to earn a bachelors of science from the University of Baltimore. She was named Schneider's 2007 Director of the year.
Williams-Connor will head Schneider Regional Educational Institute, the newest arm
of the medical center. The institute is at the center of an ongoing effort to educate and prepare students for future careers in nursing. SRMC, along with many stateside hospitals, has long faced a nursing shortage forcing it to employ contract nurses from off-island.
Carty, in the release, noted that efforts to recruit nurses from Puerto Rico, as several states are doing, have been opposed locally by the licensing authority.
Williams-Connor has taught nursing at the University of the Virgin Islands, along with holding academic degrees, she is certified in Nursing Administration and Health Care Quality Management.
Topp has already stepped into his new role, handling public information for last Wednesday's accident when a V. I. Water and Power Authority truck collided with a safari bus loaded with 22 tourists.
In a phone interview Sunday morning, Topp said the position is part-time. Topp said he is an independent contractor, not a government employee, and not obliged to reveal his salary.
