New CEO takes over at Wuesthoff

Florida Today, October 1, 2010

As he takes over the top job at Wuesthoff Health System, Steven Patonai hopes to end the long competitive friction with health care rival Health First.

"I'm approaching it by coming in without the history," said Wuesthoff's new chief executive officer, referring to the ongoing antitrust dispute between the two providers. "I'm focusing on moving forward and on opportunities to work together."

The 54-year-old Patonai succeeds Emil Miller, the past CEO of Wuesthoff today as the $145 million sale to Health Management Associates becomes official.
