Wednesday, June 30, 2021

REHAB Hospital of the Pacific (REHAB) announced today that Stephanie Nadolny has been hired as its new CEO. Nadolny will take the reins from retiring CEO Dr. Timothy Roe, who was one of the longest serving CEOs in REHAB history. Nadolny was selected from a nationwide search and will officially start as the new REHAB CEO in September.

Nadolny comes to REHAB from Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital Cape Cod in Massachusetts where she was the vice president of hospital operations and vice president of clinical ancillary services for the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network. She has more than 25 years experience in hospital management and has had operational responsibility for a 60-bed inpatient rehabilitation facility with five outpatient satellites and a physicians’ practice.

“REHAB plays an important role as Hawaii’s only comprehensive medical rehabilitation hospital offering high-quality inpatient and outpatient care to patients and their families. It’s an honor to join this incredible team and I look forward to working with hospital leadership, staff, board members and our greater community in rebuilding lives together,” Nadolny says.

Nadolny is a member of the American Medical Rehabilitation Providers Association, American College of Healthcare Executives and also served on the Board of Directors for Leadership Cape Cod. She is a graduate of University of New Hampshire with a B.S. in therapeutic recreation and a Master of Healthcare Administration from University of New Hampshire. 

Board chair Glenn Sexton stated, “In finding our new CEO, we are confident that REHAB will continue its commitment to quality care and improvements as an organization that will benefit many more generations of patients well into the future. While we were saddened to hear about Dr. Roe’s decision to retire, we are forever grateful for all he has done to position REHAB as a leader in rehabilitative care.”

Roe, who will be retiring in the fall of 2021, will continue to be onboard to assist with the transition. Under Dr. Roe’s leadership, REHAB was often ranked amongst the top rehabilitation hospitals in the country and the hospital underwent a multi-year, facility wide renovation, updating patient and administrative areas, therapy equipment, and network infrastructure, positively impacting thousands of patients and Hawaii families. 

“It has been my honor and a privilege to serve Hawaii’s community in the capacity of REHAB’s CEO for the past 10 years, but we are very excited to have a new CEO with extensive experience in rehabilitation hospital management and operations,” said retiring CEO Dr. Timothy Roe. “It is a great opportunity for REHAB to continue its growth and service to the community under accomplished leadership which has had notable success in the delivery of exceptional patient outcomes.”
