After an extensive search, AdventHealth has named Justin Birmele to the position of CEO for AdventHealth Winter Park. Birmele will assume leadership of the hospital effective immediately. Birmele replaces Jennifer Wandersleben, who recently transitioned to a new role as president/CEO of acute care services for AdventHealth’s Central Florida Division – South Region.
“It is an exciting time for AdventHealth Winter Park and I am confident Justin’s clinical and operational experience and collaborative leadership style will take this health care campus to new heights and provide whole-person health to even more people in this community,” said Terry Shaw, president/CEO for AdventHealth.
Birmele most recently served as the vice president and chief operating officer for AdventHealth Winter Park, responsible for leading hospital operations, including ancillary and support service departments. Justin also oversaw the renovation and construction projects for the hospital, including the new Nicholson Pavilion and Oviedo ED. He has worked in health care for more than 18 years with the majority of those being at AdventHealth in both clinical and operational areas.
“I care deeply for this community and I’m excited to share our ongoing vision with the AdventHealth Winter Park family,” Birmele said. “I am honored to work with the physicians, team members and community partners as we continue to deliver Christ-centered, whole-person care to Winter Park.”
Birmele is no stranger to Winter Park as a graduate of Leadership Winter Park. In addition, he serves on multiple community boards as a current member of Central Florida’s ACHE and a graduate of the inaugural AdventHealth Executive Leadership Program.
Birmele and his wife, Lindsey, have a beautiful baby girl, Danika. In his free time, Birmele enjoys travel and dining, spending time with his family and friends, and being involved in the Winter Park and Oviedo communities.
