Randee Reynolds, secretary/treasurer of Northern New England Conference (NNEC) and interim president of Parkview Adventist Medical Center (Parkview), has accepted the invitation of the Parkview Adventist Medical Center Board and Membership Committee and the Central Maine Medical Center of Lewiston, Maine, to become president of the Adventist owned and operated 55-bed hospital in Brunswick, Maine. He has held the position on an interim basis for the past seven months.
“The conference at large, the office staff, and I will greatly miss the expertise and enthusiasm that Randee brought into leadership here in NNEC,” said Mike Ortel, NNEC president. “We have experienced many joys, accomplishments and challenges together that have put us on our knees many, many times. God has been our refuge and strength. I believe that God sent Randee to this conference when we needed his particular leadership the most. Now his talents will be shared with Parkview.”
Since 2008, Reynolds has been employed by the Northern New England Conference, most recently holding the position of secretary/treasurer. While serving the constituents, he was instrumental in acquiring many new church and school properties. The Cedar Haven Campground, located in Freeport, Maine, now in its second year, was purchased under his leadership. He secured the new conference office at 479 Main Street, Westbrook, Maine, in 2011 at a below market value and has overseen the renovation process, taking it from a library facility to a corporate office.
“I want to thank the Northern New England Conference constituents for the opportunity to serve this conference for the last four years. I also want to thank the office staff for their support! The Lord has blessed this conference in so many ways. I am so thankful that God still uses humble men and women to do His work,” Reynolds said.
Included in a release from Parkview was the statement, “With over 25 years experience in leadership positions, both in the private sector and in the Adventist system, Reynolds brings a great depth of understanding of the complex issues facing service-oriented institutions. Before moving to Maine he was the vice president of business development for the Florida Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. Reynolds has served as a member of the board and the finance committee for Florida Hospital, a 10 hospital system based in Orlando, Florida, and recognized as one of the top health care systems in the southeastern United States.”
May God continue to bless Reynolds with wisdom as he leads Parkview Adventist Medical Center.
