February 3, 2014
As of February 1, 2014, Carol W. Sim is now serving as the new President and Chief Executive Officer of Siskin Hospital for Physical Rehabilitation. Please join the Siskin Hospital family in welcoming Carol!
Carol is replacing longstanding President and CEO, Robert P. Main, who retired on January 31, 2014 after 26 years of service at Siskin Hospital.
Carol brings more than 30 years in healthcare and leadership experience to Siskin Hospital, including eleven years as a CEO.
“After conducting a thorough nationwide search, we are excited to have secured an individual the caliber of Carol Sim. She has a proven track record in hospital and health system executive management with a passion for rehabilitation and the patients served,” said Bob Best, Chairman of Siskin Hospital’s Board of Directors. “We are confident in Carol’s ability to build upon the strengths of Siskin Hospital and take the Hospital successfully into the future. She will be a dynamic asset to Siskin Hospital and the community.”
A search committee consisting of a national search firm and members of Siskin Hospital’s Board Executive Committee conducted the search for the Hospital’s next dedicated leader. Siskin Hospital’s Board of Directors unanimously approved Carol Sim as the new President and CEO.
Carol recently served as President and CEO of the Rehabilitation Hospital of the Cape and Islands, a member of the nationally acclaimed Spaulding Rehabilitation Network in Boston. Her experience also includes serving as CEO of a rehabilitation hospital in Florida, as well as a home health organization in Connecticut. Additionally, she has served for sixteen years in a variety of clinical and management roles at Yale-New Haven Hospital.
“Carol is an excellent choice to continue the mission and culture of Siskin Hospital and to build on the reputation for excellence on a local, regional, and national level. Her character, enthusiasm for rehabilitation, and her proven success record will serve her well as the leader of Siskin Hospital,” said Robert Main.
Carol’s extensive community involvement as a director for many organizations such as the Cape Cod Symphony, Cape Cod Five Cent Bank, Cape Leadership Institute, and Cape Technology Council led the Cape Cod Times to characterize her as “one of a handful of the most influential people on the Cape over the past decade.” She was awarded the Cape Cod Leader of the Year Award from the Cape Leadership Institute and the Woman of Achievement Award from the Professional and Business Women’s Association of Cape Cod.
Carol holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing, as well as a Masters of Public Health in Health Policy and Management, both from Columbia University.
