Director of Facilities, Engineering, and Design & Construction

Holy Cross Hospital, a private Catholic, non-profit community hospital opened in 1955 to serve the sick and injured without regard to race, religion, or nationality. As a non-profit entity, Holy Cross Hospital operates for one purpose: to further their healing ministry.

Owned and sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy for decades, Holy Cross Health (HCH) is now a regional health ministry of Trinity Health, inclusive of a 557-bed licensed acute care hospital, 200-member employed physician group, Ambulatory Surgery Center, multiple outpatient locations, and an academic affiliation with the University of Miami School of Medicine. HCH contains one of the greatest concentrations of medical talent in South Florida, is both a CMS 5-Star and Leapfrog “A” performing facility. Their medical staff consists of more than 600 highly skilled physicians representing nearly every specialty in medicine. Their skills attract patients from around South Florida, across the United States, and around the globe.

As a community partner for more than 65 years, HCH reinvests their profits back into the communities they serve by improving healthcare services, buying new technologies, upgrading facilities, and making sure that care is available to everyone — regardless of their ability to pay.

Compassion is the foundation for all that HCH does. Patients and their families are treated as people first, which means compassion, dignity, and respect are at the core of any treatment program. It also means that when someone is treated within the HCH ministry, the needs of the whole person — body, mind, and spirit — are what matters most. In their most recent reporting period, their hospitals delivered more than $26m in community benefits.

HCH is a proud member of Trinity Health, one of the nation’s largest Catholic healthcare delivery systems, located in Livonia, MI. Trinity Health is a $20.2B revenue health network of care that spans 25 states, 88 hospitals, 125 urgent care locations, 131 continuing care locations, 25.8K affiliated physicians, 1.4M attributed lives, and 115,000 colleagues nationwide.
